Twiford Funeral Homes was invited to participate in the Albemarle Family YMCA’s first Active Older Adults Day, on Wednesday, May 30, 2018, from 9:00 to 12 noon. Representing the funeral home were F. Joe Griffith, funeral director, and Kailee Brothers, a high school student with the ambition of entering funeral service as a career.
Those invited to participate were businesses who might have some appeal to the senior citizen community which included a drug store, hearing aid companies, fire department, country club and others. The display tables were through the entrance halls through which all YMCA members passed. An estimated fifty people stopped by the funeral home display for a variety of grief brochures and several brochures related to funeral preplanning. They also registered for a gift certificate to Cypress Grill.
Mr. Griffith and Miss Brothers were delighted to share with all who visited their display and hope to return next year for what hopes to be an even larger event.
