ENRICHMENT FOR AUGUSTAugust 27, 2013End of Life PlanningAttorney Angela Clark of Clark & Clark, PA in Lenoir presented a program about end of life documents - will, power of attorney, health care power of attorney, and living wills.She noted that "do it yourself" wills can technically be legal, but she urged members to use the services of an attorney to be sure there are no unintended consequences. Wills direct what happen to your property upon your death. Without a will, state law regulates who will receive your property. Persons under 18 cannot receive property so it is important to make provision for minors. Wills require the signatures of two (2) independent witnesses. The signatures should be notarized to ensure the validity of the signatures. Wills should be stored where they can be found easily. Obsolete wills should be destroyed to prevent litigation if there is more than one will presented. She suggests registering your will with the Clerk of Court. If you choose to store your will at home, use a fire proof container. Make sure your executor knows where to find it. A Power of Attorney gives another person the right to act as you. He can sign your name and conduct business for you. You can designate the type of documents which he can sign and the type of business he can transact. A Health Care Power of Attorney gives another person the right to make decisions about your health care in the event you become incompetent. A Living Will allows you to give advance directives - letting your family and medical provider know whether or not you want CPR, life support, etc. Business SessionMembers voted to continue sponsoring the Woman of the Year Award, enter a Create-A-Thon contest (with the hope of winning a professional logo design), and to collaborate with CAST on a dinner theatre next Spring (March is the target date).
