Come hear the story from Paul Thompson and the Escape from the Nazis.  Paul went through several Army programs and trainings before finding himself a soldier on the Siegfried Line on the border between Germany and Belgium. It was supposedly a safe spot on the front line for the green 106th Division. But a few days later, the German Army came crashing across the perimeter, and the Battle of the Bulge had begun. (Minnesota Legionnaire, p.10; June 2017)

A lunch is served following the presentation. Cost is $5 per person.  Call for reservations: (763) 537-8481.  Bring spouses and guests!

Presenter: Anne Morehouse

Anne Morehouse is owner and founder of MN Funeral Planning (MFP), a collaborative effort with 22 hospices and hospitals throughout the Twin Cities to provide the MN Funeral Planning Resource Guide to their patients’ families and loved ones.  Anne started MFP as a result of her own experience when she needed to plan her father’s funeral 12 years ago.  Her mission is to encourage families to have their end of life wishes in discussions with one another to ease the stress that comes with the loss of a loved one.

“Have you and your loved ones had the conversation for your end of life wishes?  Anne Morehouse of MN Funeral Planning provides insight, introspection and suggestions of the delicate topic.”

She will be joined by a local Funeral Director from Gearty-Delmore Funeral Chapels.  They will be available to answer questions that you might have.
