KEEP YOUR CALENDARS OPEN FOR UPCOMING MSED SPONSORED PRESENTATIONS
The Society wishes to thank Lisa Weisgerber of Covenant Palliative Institute for the excellent presentation to our members on Advance Care Planning held on April 27, 2017. The presentation was interesting, informative and Lisa went to a lot of effort to provide members with information and to answer questions. Attendance was well over expected at over 50. We hope to do this again in the future.
The Memorial Society of Edmonton and District is a non-profit, non-sectarian society of members who encourage simplicity and dignity in final needs preparation. We believe your needs should be respected at a reasonable price for cremation or preparation for burial services. This includes prices for transfer, plot, headstone or other related services.
