Lunch & Learn For Caregivers – Cremation

August 23 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Presented by Central Cremation Center (CCC)   Program Flyer

Central Cremation Center opened in November 2021 in Forsyth, IL with Co-Founders Tom Cantwell and Jason Murphy.  Both have prior experience working in the field before joining together to form a new style company and service that this area truly needs.

The direct cremation service is very popular in southern states such as Texas, Florida and Arizona.  The Co-Founders researched and saw ideas from a variety of other locations to mold what CCC would look and operate like in Central Illinois.

During 2022, the first full year of cremation, Central Cremation Center worked with 600 families in a pre-arrangement or at-need cases in the month of December.  Those numbers are already looking to be topped through projections from the first 5 months of 2023.

Central Cremation Center’s presentation is informational only, not for selling purposes.  This presentation will allow the listener to learn about the options of a family with lower income or the lack of need for the pomp and circumstance of the traditional funeral.

Registration is required by August 21st.  To register, call AgeLinc at (217) 787-9234.

Lunch & Learn Programs are FREE, monthly, one hour sessions offered to current, future and past caregivers.  These programs are presented in-person by professionals on the 3rd Wednesday of each month.  Lunch will be provided, registration is required.
