September 24, at 10 am, 3845 North Swan Street – “The Five Remembrances and the Nurturing and Caring Community”
“As humans, we face inevitable aging, illness, loss, and death,” said Lynda Aiman-Smith. “And in our current culture, many of us resist talking about and preparing for these inevitabilities – especially death. As Unitarian Universalists say, ‘Concerns shared are concerns eased.’”
During the program, Aiman-Smith will discuss developing a nurturing and caring community to help each other face the inevitability of death.
Lynda Aiman-Smith and her late partner Larry bought their house in Silver City in 2003, and remained periodic residents until they moved here full-time in 2010. She was a serial small business owner; then a mid-level manager in a Fortune 500 company; and finally, she was a tenured faculty member in the Poole College of Management in North Carolina State University.
From 2014-2021 Aiman-Smith served as Silver City Town Councilor for District 2, and was an active volunteer in local non-profit organizations. She loves living here in Silver City.
