Family Friendly Events at the Farley Center in Verona

Daily I find emails in my in-box that deal with death....that's life when you are an estate planning attorney.  One email caught my attention.  The Linda and  Gene Farley Center for Peace, Justice, and Sustainability in Verona, Wisconsin is holding two events this summer.  Both are kid friendly.  What does this have to do with death?  Among many things, the Farley Center offers green burial in Wisconsin.

Saturday July 7,  8-10AM -- Bird Watch Walk and Breakfast
Join Ed Sauer, bird watching enthusiast and member of  the Audobon society, on a walk through the woods at the Farley Center watching and identifying birds.  Specially geared for beginners. The Farley Center property has many varieties that make their home here.  End the walk with a simple breakfast together, donations will go to the Audobon Society.  Wear sturdy shoes and bring binoculars if you have them.  Please pre-register by Saturday June 30th as numbers are limited.

Saturday, August 4 (time TBD) -- Peace Literacy for the Family
Grandparents, parents and children are invited to a read-in with peace story books.  There will be fun activities to do together amidst the peace of the Farley Center.  Mark your calendars

My kids are a bit too young to enjoy the birding and breakfast event later this week, and I'll be out of town for the peace read-in.  I do plan to take them out for future events, maybe in the fall.  I've been to the center in the past, and highly recommend a visit if it meshes with your values.
