Extension programs will focus on estate planning

Planning for the future is vital for families who want to preserve assets for the next generation.

K-State Research and Extension will offer the workshop “Preserving the Family with Estate Planning,” to aid families in beginning the process of transitioning from one generation to another. Topics will include estate planning basics, family communication, transfer of non-titled assets, charitable estate planning and farm transition planning.

The workshop will be held in two locations:

• Thursday, March 13, a Immanuel Lutheran Church, Hoxie
• Friday, March 14, at Thirsty’s, Hays.

The cost for the all-day workshop is $15 by March 7 and includes program handouts, refreshments and lunch.

The goal of the workshop is to help families use estate planning to preserve the most valuable asset of all: the family itself. Save the date and plan to attend.
