Learn about estate planning

Lawyer Robert Culos will offer a free workshop Oct. 1 at the Armstrong library

Though no one likes to plan for their own demise, creating an estate plan is a vital component of sound financial management.

Local lawyer Robert Culos has seen the fall-out when someone dies without a will, and has volunteered to present an informative workshop explaining the importance of estate planning at the Armstrong library, Thursday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Culos has been practising law in Vernon, Armstrong and surrounding area since 1993, and volunteers with North Okanagan CrimeStoppers and Caravan Farm Theatre.

To register for his workshop, call the library at 250-546-8311 or visit the branch at 3305 Smith Dr.
