Meet the Author Series Returns!

POSTPONED UNTIL SPRING.

Meet local author Ernest Keegan with his new book Strange angels : a love story minus the candy hearts and flowers from Page Publishing

Ernest Keegan, a former member of the Air Force with training in the electromechanical field, and a former amateur boxer during his teen years, has completed his new book “Strange Angels”: an enticing novel reflecting the dangers and thrills of the sports industry blended with an intricate love story.
Author Keegan takes a glimpse of the complexities of a life inside the boxing ring: “The early-morning roadwork, picking up fighters at ungodly hours, adjusting their schedule to help a fighter keep to his, the hours in the gym, the out-of-pocket expenses that never got paid back, the irritations on the home front because many times the fighter took precedence to personal matters. These were all part of the package. Were they going to finally find the champion they so desperately searched for? Most knew the answer to that. They bought their lottery tickets at regular intervals to balance that particular dream out. It was just ingrained in them. The gym itself was a place of refuge, of stability. Even in the everyday violence and turmoil that existed each and every time the timer buzzer went off or the bell rang, the gym was the eye of the storm in an increasingly dangerous and uncontrollable hurricane known as the world. For some the only emotional home they had.”

Letting Your Family Know Your Wishes: What You Want vs. What They Need

Monday, November 19, 1:00pm
Free and open to the public. Please register.

Join Funeral Director Frank Perman for guidance on how to talk with your family about your wishes for end-of-life decisions. It may seem odd to talk about such topics at this time of year. but seizing the opportunity while the family is together can save heartaches and misunderstanding later. Frank will be discussing the potential disconnect between the funeral that people want to plan for themselves compared to what the survivors need in order to move past a death. He will also discuss ways to reconcile these differences with dignity. Please bring your questions.
