    At least 20 percent of people who have come close to death have had a near-death experience.

    Come to the Senior Center and learn more about these life-changing events on Wednesday, Oct. 30, at 1 p.m.

    Dr. Pam Kircher, a retired family practice and hospice physician, will lead a discussion after the presentation of a 30-minute DVD, “Introduction to Near-Death Experiences,” produced by the International Association of Near-Death Studies (IANDS).

    Kircher’s own childhood near-death experience led to her interest in the topic.
