Lights of Life Celebrations

Lights of Life has been a joyous celebration for 17 years at West Marin Senior Services, honoring the memories, dreams and spirits of those who have passed on. We welcome donations in memory of our loved ones to support West Marin Senior Services.

This year we will have two celebrations:

On Friday, Dec 1st from 6:30 – 7:00 p.m. we invite the community to a brief candle lighting ceremony across the street from the Wells Fargo Bank in Point Reyes Station. After a few holiday songs from Harmony Grisman and the Heart Song Circle, and a very brief reading, we will blow out our candles, and the tree will magically light with lovely decorations.

On Saturday, Dec. 2nd from 4:30 – 5:00 p.m. we invite the Valley community to join us at the San Geronimo Community Center for the Celebration of Life with Scott Grace invoking memories in song. Donations made the day of this event will be shared with the Community Center.

Marin Financial Planning Day Oct 29th

Marin Financial Planning Day
Date/Time
 – Saturday, 10/29/2016 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
The Financial Planning Association of San Francisco invites you to attend Marin Financial Planning Day where you’ll be able to meet one-on-one with dozens of highly qualified Certified Financial Planner professionals to discuss your personal finance questions, concerns and interests.
Don’t miss this opportunity for a free, private consultation with an expert on a wide variety of personal finance issues, including debt management, retirement planning, investment strategies, income taxes, insurance, and estate planning, among many others!
And best of all, there are no strings attached! Financial planners are volunteering their time and will not pass out business cards, marketing materials or sell products or services. They will be stationed at tables and will meet with one individual or couple at a time, but there is no limit to the number of volunteers you can meet with.
In addition to one-on-one consultations, there will be a series of informative classroom workshops presented by top financial planners on a wide range of financial topics. Stay as little or as long as you’d like.
Participants can reserve an appointment in advance at the Money Matters booth at the Marin Senior Fair on October 26; or they can register online at: http://www.financialplanningdays.org/event/marin-financial-planning-day or simply drop in for an appointment at the event
