Wills and Their Importance — Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at 7:30 p.m.                                                                  We are happy to announce that Jean, an attorney and our sister, will give her program on wills:  “Wills and Their Importance”, which was previously scheduled for the February meeting.  Thank you, Jean!

Most people should have a will.  Wills can distribute your property, name an executor, name guardians for children, forgive debts, and more.  Having a will also means that you, rather than your state’s laws, decide who gets your property when you die.  Wills are signed by and and witnessed to ensure authenticity.

The program originally scheduled for March–Let’s Talk About Recipes–will be scheduled for a future meeting         Dian is our hostess and Veronica is our co-hostess.
