|The White House Butler|
Former White House butler Alan DeValerio is coming to the Calendar House Senior Center!! He's going to give you the inside details about all the preparations involved in White House entertaining. Not only will he relate his first-hand experiences with history, but he will pass on the stories from those people that he worked with (like Eugene Allen, on whom the movie "The Butler" was based) who have been taking care of our First Families ever since the Franklin Roosevelt administration!
Alan will also display many of the White House artifacts (menus, programs, personal photos, etc. ) that he has collected over the years. And after the program, his new book "A History of Entertainment in the Modern White House" ($20, cash or check) will be available for purchase and signing. This is a presentation that you won't want to miss!

|Coffee 'n Dessert - Estate Planning|
Estate Planning Documents Every Adult Should Have
Wednesday, October 12th @ 1:30 p.m.
Presented by: Attorney Colleen Masse
Sponsored by: Czepiga, Daly, Pope & Perri
The past couple years have taught us that life circumstances can change in an instant. If they do, are you prepared? Consider some difficult questions…. Do you want to be on life support? Who will pay your bills if you can't? And if you pass away, how will your estate be divided amongst your heirs? In this program, you'll learn about Wills, trusts, powers of attorney (POA), and healthcare directives. You'll walk away understanding what these documents are for, and what you need to do to create yours. Even if you have already created an estate plan, come learn about recent law updates and discover if you should have your existing documents reviewed and updated.
Registration is required. Please call 860-621-3014 to register for this program. Light refreshments will be served.
