November is recognized as Make a Will Month, drawing attention to the critical task of will creation and estate planning. The Kingston Frontenac Public Library (KFPL) is contributing to this initiative by hosting a presentation designed to simplify the first steps of will-making for individuals.
Ryan MacNeil, collaborating with the Ontario Bar Association, will spearhead the session, clarifying the intricacies of wills, the significance of powers of attorney, and the consequences of not having a will. This initiative ensures that the public, irrespective of age or financial status, has access to essential information for future planning.
Librarian Jake Miller, who oversees Adult Programming at KFPL, highlights the value of this event: “Making wills and dealing with estate planning may seem overwhelming, but they are crucial for your financial future.” Miller invites residents to “attend this presentation with Ryan and the OBA, you’ll learn the essentials and gain the confidence to take control of your financial planning.”
The event is scheduled for 2-3 p.m. on November 24 at the Isabel Turner Branch of KFPL. Interested attendees are required to register for the presentation, with sign-ups available online.
