January meeting: Green Burial Video

The January MTN meeting will be Tuesday, January 19, 2021, from 7 – 9 PM CST (zoom link below). We will be watching a green burial YouTube video by funeral director Amy Cummingham. 

AMY CUNNINGHAM presented at the Green Burial Council Conference in October 2020 on zoom.  Her presentation of the 9 stages of a green burial is amazing, heart-filled, and very informative.  We will be sharing and discussing this video.

Amy Cunningham is a New York state licensed funeral director and the owner of Fitting Tribute Funeral Services in Brooklyn which specializes in green burials, home funerals, cremation services and memorial events of all sorts. Check out her other website for resources here. Listen to Amy on NPR.

This will be the first MTN event of 2021.  We hope you can join us.
