Neptune Society of Northern California, Walnut Creek - Laugh, Love, Live Senior Event
On May 6, 2016, Neptune Society of Northern California’s Walnut Creek office attended the Laugh, Love, Live Senior Event at the Pleasant Hill Senior Center. This is the 4th time this office has participated in this annual event, with a sponsor table as well as an informational booth. The sponsor table can be decorated in any theme. Last year our office created a nautical theme. This year they choose to decorate the booth as an “Elegant Peacock”. Bari Hendershot created a beautiful centerpiece and surrounded it in large faux diamonds. Each place setting had a gift box with peacock feathers, chocolate, brochures, pens and emery boards. The event gave us an excellent opportunity to meet new members of the community, as well as connect with families Neptune Society of Northern California has previously served.
