Calvary Cemetery Association has a booth in the HomeWorld Show the first two weekends in February! Come visit us and pick up a free copy of the award winning documentary “Saying Goodbye” as well as a personal reference file and planner.
“We want to make the documentary available to as many people as possible,” says Board of Trustees Marketing Chair Lynn Alejandrino. “It shows important historical facts about Dayton and the landmark that Calvary Cemetery is for the area. It also explains why it is important to remember our family members when they are no longer with us.”
“We are also offering this easy to use personal reference file as a way for families to organize their documents and make their plans known to those who need to know when the time comes.” Lynn continues, “So often we help families who have no idea what their loved one would have wanted in their final arrangements. It is heartbreaking to see them struggle with these kind of decisions at the most difficult of times. Just taking the time to get things organized and stored all in one place is a tremendous gift to those who love you.”
Isn’t it odd for a cemetery to be participating in a home show, you might ask. “We are supporting our community,” says Cemetery Superintendent Rick Meade. “It is a good place to reach families who are taking care of their homes. These are the people we serve everyday in taking care of their deceased loved ones.”
Denise Williams and Rick Meade greeted hundreds of HomeWorld Show goers. Copies of the Saying Goodbye documentary and Personal Reference File Planners were distributed.
The HomeWorld Show is held at the Airport Expo Center. Show hours are Friday, February 1 and 8, from 4 pm to 8 pm.;
Saturday, February 2 and 9, 10 am to 6 pm; and Sunday, February 3 and 10, 10 am to 6 pm.
