Debbie Folz, Social Worker, and Levon Dozier, Hospice Chaplain, from MSA (Medical Services of America) Hospice will address this sensitive topic Monday, December 15 from 11am-noon in the Diamond Room.

Light refreshments.

Please sign up at the Circulation Desk so we know how many to expect.  Questions?  Call 853-5468, ext. 301.
