The Time and the Valleys Museum has announced Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate?, a virtual presentation on practical information about the inheritance and transfer of non-titled personal property, set for Sunday, May 16th at 2 pm.
This program is designed to help families communicate, make decisions, and lessen conflict when transferring personal property.
Guest speakers Bonnie Lewis RN/Dependent Care Educator (Caregiver Resource Center, Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County), Carol Smythe, Neversink Historian and Dot Muthig, antique collector will cover how to bring up inheritance issues for discussion; how to prepare a legally appropriate list of non-titled property; how to decide what ‘fair’ means to all parties; how to ask others what household items they would like and why; and how to identify the transfer goals.
This program is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $5 or $10. Registration is required and can be completed by emailing email@example.com. For more information call (845) 985-7700 or visit the museum’s website
