Hills Chamber of Commerce – Business Showcase @ Metropolitan Funerals
Jul 18 @ 4:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Business Showcase – George Hartnett Metropolitan Funerals

Come along and learn about Funeral Service – lifting the urban myth – find out the truth about funeral service and what can and can’t be done.

Obtain an understanding of how the industry has changed over 20 years.

Are you Curious?
What is involved in funeral service, insurance, prepaid, changes in the industry, funeral costs, how people are changing what they do, learning about what really happens at crematoria and
cemeteries. Bring some questions and we will confirm if they are urban myth or not.

Event – Who should attend?
Anybody – this is not about finding funerals – it is about educating about funerals.

Funerals are rarely a service that people wish to use, but, the event will be relaxed, not overly serious but informative. We are planning to have a hearse here with an empty coffin for attendees to view and examine. This is a funeral office so attendees will not be exposed to anything considered unsuitable.
