Focus Group Volunteers Needed to Help Artsy Fartsy

Help Our Learning, Help Artsy Fartsy!
Thursday, September 12, 7-8:30 pm
In exchange for your participation in a focus group on attitudes about funeral planning, Artsy Fartsy Saturdays will be the recipient of a donation.
Cathy Barney, a member of the CFM Burial Committee, will host the group for those 55 and over with a longtime industry expert. There’s no pitch, just a survey and discussion that aids research and the burial committee.
For information or to participate, please contact Cathy Barney (cathybarney@hotmail.com/513-638-2738). Feel free to ask a friend or family member. We hope to elicit 8-10 participants.
