“You and your Stuff: How to Successfully Transition Your Memories to the Next Generation”
November 16 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pmFree
with Terri Blanchette
We’ve all heard the repeating phrase “Your kids don’t want your stuff” – and to an extent that is very true. Each generation embraces only those aspects from the previous generation that resonates with them. BUT – there IS a way to work with that fact to help ensure you not only successfully transition the “stuff” of your history, but also help the next generation not regret their hasty decisions.
