Get Your Ducks in a Row
Workshop on Funeral Planning
Find out everything you wanted to know about planning a funeral in South Carolina. We are holding
another planning workshop on Saturday, May 11, 2019. This year the workshop will take place at All
Saints’ Episcopal Church, 1001 12th Street in Cayce, SC. The session will last from 9 a.m. until noon.
Who needs to attend the workshop? You do! Most people know nothing about how to navigate the funeral
industry and end up paying far more for funeral arrangements than they need to. Information in this
workshop can save you money.
After a brief introduction on the history of American funeral practices, we will explain available funeral
options, goods, and services, point out the benefits of advance planning, describe recent changes in the
funeral industry and how they affect consumers, and spell out your consumer rights under the Federal
Funeral Rule. We also will offer advice on money-saving strategies and ways of paying for a funeral.
The workshop fee is $10 for an individual and $15 for a couple, if you pre-register. Walk-ins are welcome,
but the fee at the door will be $15 per individual and $20 per couple. Register by sending a check,
payable to FCASC, to FCASC, 2701 Heyward St., Columbia, SC 29205. Please include your name,
mailing address, telephone number, and email address, if available.
We will give you lots of useful printed information to take away, and you will leave with a rubber ducky to
give your grandchild or other lucky youngster, or to play with yourself and feel pleased that you can now
get your ducks in a row.
