Extension Office Hosts Seminar On Wills, Trusts

October 15, 2013
By

Indiana Homemakers Week is Oct. 14 to 19 and this year the state organization is celebrating 100 years. In observance of the anniversary, members of a local county organization will host a presentation on Thursday.

A seminar called “Who gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate” will be presented by the Ripley County Extension Homemakers. Doug Wilson, who is a lawyer in Batesville, will be presenting general information about the legal aspects of wills, living wills, trusts, revocable trust and some aspects of estate planning and any new laws regarding estates and property.

It is free and open to the public for anyone interested in attending. It is for all ages, as it is never too early to plan. General information will be given that anyone can use, even if an individual already has a plan in place.

“Sometimes your circumstances change or new family issues have come about that need to be addressed,” said Ripley County Extension President Theresa Holbert.

“It is not only about the pie plate, but the wide screen TV, the family farm, the kids and the pets or anything else that you don’t want the government to have a part in saying who gets what,” she added.

The seminar will be held at the Sherman House in Batesville on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 6:45 p.m.

Holbert noted, “We encourage your friends to come also. We do ask that you call and let us you know if you plan to attend so we have material and seating available.”

Contact the Ripley County Extension Office at (812) 689- 6511 or Theresa Holbert at (812) 934- 2276. It is recommended to have reservations due in by Wednesday, Oct. 16.

The Sherman House will offer a special of an Italian Chicken Pasta with a bread stick and side salad for $8.95. Other choices will be available.

The Ripley County Extension Homemaker Organization has been in existence since 1928.
