As you may already have heard, the 9th Great International Obituary Writers Conference is coming June 14-15-16 to our one-traffic-light village of Alfred, New York. While Alfred is not the "end of the world," you can see it from here. And, with most of its 5000+ college students gone for the summer, Alfred can be "dead" during the summer. We're hoping the obituary writers in attendance at the 9th Great will bring some life to our fair village.
If anyone is in need of assistance in making arrangements to attend the 9th Great, please feel free to e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org As a library assistant at Alfred University's Herrick Memorial Library, I take joy in connecting people with the information they need. And, as a lifelong Alfredian, I'd like to think I have a pretty good grasp of our local resources.
Already we are making plans and around town word is spreading, "The Obit Writers Are Coming!" "The Obit Writers Are Coming!"
