Welcome to Our Fall 2011 Issue
Welcome to our fall issue which we've filled with a variety of interesting articles we hope you'll find helpful. It's hard to believe that school is in full swing and the holidays are just around the corner.
Speaking of the holidays, whether this is your first holiday season without a loved one or your twenty-first season, it is natural to experience feelings of sadness or nostalgia. To help you remember that special person this year, we hope you will attend our Tree of Memories event on December 4th, 2011. For complete information, please refer to page 2 of this newsletter.
We want to congratulate CASEY'S COOKIES for being the "People's Choice" as the charity to receive the net proceeds from our commemorative holiday ornament sales in 2011. Net Proceeds from each ornament sold, whether for a pet or a person, will benefit Casey's Cookies. Anderson-McQueen will also donate $250 to Ready for Life and Center for Women's Ministry for their active participation in this year's event. We also want to thank all of you for the various charities you submitted for this year's contest. Each of these charities do tremendous work within our community and we thank you for all you do and encourage you to enter again next year. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those in our community.
Our newest addition, the Bio-Cremation facility, began operation in September. The public response to this new flameless cremation process has been overwhelmingly positive. We are hosting free, no obligation seminars at our Cremation Tribute Center to educate our community on both traditional cremation as well as our new earth-friendly alternative, Bio Cremation. We hope you'll come take a tour and learn about this fascinating new option for those considering cremation.
We wish you and your family the very best for the remainder of 2011 and beyond.
Warmest Regards, John McQueen
