NY: Join us at the Over 50 Fair in Melville

September 23, 2016

We sent the following message to our Long Island supporters this week:


As you may know, Long Island’s Over 50 Fair will be held in Melville on Sunday. And Compassion & Choices will be there to recruit supporters and spread our message.

Compassion & Choices National Board Member Samantha Sandler will present a workshop titled “Dying with Dignity: A Discussion about New York’s Medical Aid in Dying Act,” and Long Island Action Team members will be staffing a table at the event to collect petition signatures and postcards to lawmakers. Join us for an informative discussion and a chance to meet other supporters of medical aid in dying.

WHAT: “Dying with Dignity: A Discussion about New York’s Medical Aid in Dying Act” at the Long Island Over 50 Fair
WHERE: Melville Marriott, 1350 Walt Whitman Rd, Melville, NY 11747
WHEN: Sunday, September 25, 2016 from 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

The Over 50 Fair was created to celebrate life over age 50. The event is part health and wellness fair, part conference, and part baby-boomer/senior fair. Tickets are $6 in advance and $8 at the door.

This event is a great opportunity to meet other supporters of expanded end-of-life options on Long Island. Join us to learn what you can do to help our New York campaign.
