THE OLD-FASHIONED WAY:
GREEN BURIAL OPTIONS IN ATHENS COUNTY
SUNDAY, AUGUST 30, 2020, 11am by Zoom
Come learn about efforts to identify options for old-fashioned burials in Athens County. Cheryl Cesta and Wenda Sheard have been working in a small group to reach out to township trustees about allowing burials in a more natural way. Come learn about the environmental, emotional, and financial benefits of green burials.
This interactive Zoom service will include ample time for questions, as well as access to a packet of information that the group has been distributing to township trustees around Athens County. The service will include news of the article they wrote along with Athens County Assistant Prosecutor Zach Saunders for publication in the Ohio Township Trustees Association Magazine.

A GIFT OF MUSIC FOR YOU
A friend of Andy Ray’s in Marietta, Andy Hall, who is a phenomenal drummer, wrote a song (without drums). His song, “Spoke the Tree,” really inspired peace for Andy Ray, so he decided to add percussion and a haiku to it. Andy Ray and Andy Hall both gave permission for us to share their work (with words below and with music in an MP3 file, attached to this Greensheet) with you here. Enjoy!
“Spoke the Tree”
Seeds so small, climb high.
Time spirals, leaves fall down.
Each day, spoke the tree.
