Samaritan, the Courier-Post, and Perkins Center for the Arts are proud partners for this thought-provoking and fun event. Join us for an interactive day of conversation, information, music and more that allows you to dabble, or jump in, to end-of-life conversations at your own pace. It is a one-of-a-kind event in South Jersey!
