“Pushin’ Up Daisies” Obituary Writing Workshop

06-06-17_Obituary Writing WorkshopJoin us at the West Tisbury Library on Tuesday, June 6th from 11:30am-1pm for an obituary writing workshop with Victoria Haeselbarth as part of the library’s “Explorations in Healthy Living” series. By writing your obituary pre-humously you are creating a remembrance that is an accurate reflection of who you are, rather than how others see you. Participants will leave this light-hearted workshop with a rough draft of their obituary which can be presented to loved ones or saved in a designated place for when the time comes. Advanced sign up is encouraged. Please contact the library to sign up: 508-693-3366. This event is free and open to the public. Refreshments served.

Victoria Haeselbarth is an outreach worker for the Edgartown Council on Aging. Victoria has led obituary writing workshops at the Edgartown Council on Aging and the Massachusetts Council on Aging’s annual conference.
