LIVE OAK —“Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate is a program developed by the University of Minnesota Extension Service and presented by the UF/IFAS Suwannee County Extension Service on how to ensure that personal belongings such as wedding photographs, holiday decorations or “Grandma’s yellow pie plate” get passed on to other members of the family.
People often make plans for titled property like cars, houses and bank accounts, but they don’t always prepare for those items that preserve memories, family history and family rituals!
During the program, there will be discussions about how the sentimental meaning attached to personal possessions can make decisions more emotional and what factors to consider and the advantages of planning ahead.
The goal of the program is to improve family decision-making through education and research. This program will be presented on Sept. 30 at two different times. People may choose either morning (9 a.m. to noon) or afternoon (2-5 p.m.) sessions.
The classes will be held at the Extension office, 1302 11th Street SW in Live Oak. Pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, call Diane McMillan or Katherine Allen at 386-362-2771.
