We all have will power!
Having a valid, up-to-date Will, Health Care Directive and Power of Attorney ensures that your wishes will be met after your death. It also provides a great opportunity to make a charitable gift to a cause that’s important to you.
Will Week is a series of free public presentations on the importance of Wills and estate planning. Sessions are presented, by professionals on a volunteer basis, as a public service and are for information purposes only.
Will Week takes place annually during the last full week of April. Please check back in the new year for information about Will Week 2020.
