How to Build a Contingency Notebook

A contingency notebook is a binder containing all the information a loved one or personal representative will need to know should you become seriously incapacitated or even die.

Sue Nunn will present this first workshop and will lead you through the process of creating your own Contingency Notebook by sharing stories of how she did this with her grandmothers, and how having these notebooks helped her respect their wishes.

Date: Thursday, May 7
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
Place: Centre for Family Literacy,
11642 - 142 St NW, Edmonton
