Funeral Profit Protectors, LLC announces dates for M & M In Granite Tour to Elberton, Georgia
Edgewood, KY. – Funeral Profit Protectors, LLC today announced the dates for its first annual “M and M” in Granite Tour.
The “Markers and Memorials” in Granite Tour will take place October 13-15, 2013 in The Granite Capital of the World – Elberton, Georgia.
If you’re already engaged in the retail sale of granite memorials, this tour will greatly enhance your overall sales and presentation knowledge. Learn and experience, first hand, how memorials are manufactured. Are you a funeral home or cemetery owner who has been “thinking about” offering granite memorials in your community? This tour is perfect for you and will answer your questions.
Participants will witness the mining and making of world-class granite memorials – from blasting out of the quarry to placing the finished memorial in its final resting place in the cemetery. The guided tour will afford attendees the opportunity to meet and network with major granite manufacturers and distributors. Shop around and negotiate the best “bottom-line pricing” from those who can provide it.
The extraordinary tour guide is Mr. C. Dale Elifrits.
