    The Halton Police are coming back to give us an update on what’s going on in the world of Cyber Security and Safety.  Two of Halton’s Regional Police will be sharing what the police are seeing and how to deal with various SCAMS and Cyber Security Tips.  Both officers are Older Adult Abuse Investigators and also deal in financial crime and with vulnerable persons

    Here is an excerpt from their website on what we will be hearing about:

    The internet and social media have become permanent fixtures in our lives. While no online security system is perfect, the Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) has developed some simple tips and steps you can take to protect you, and your information, while online.

    Criminals are inventive and adapt their methods in order to identify potential victims and access their personal information. Most online criminals are scammers trying to trick people into giving them money or account access.

    Many of the current frauds and scams including on-line relationships, banking tips and on-line shopping will be discussed.

    There are a number of simple steps that you can take to help protect you and your loved ones from various cybercrimes.

    Fowl Play

    Just as you were looking forward to an evening of genteel dining and sophisticated socializing with Dr. Percival Popinjay, Dr. Goldie Finch, and others of the bird watching society, FOWL – Friends of Ornithologists World League – death enters as an unexpected guest and the cat is amongst the pigeons.

    Is it a joke?  Is it the food?  Or is it FOWL play?  Join the inspector as he ruffles feathers and eggs-amins countless clues in relentless pursuit of answers to increasingly ominous questions.  Witness the stunning climax and perhaps share in the rewards of another successful investigation, another triumph of justice.

    Join us for an interactive dinner theatre.  Please ensure you select your dinner options and note that all meals will include a small garden salad with your choice of balsamic or catalina salad dressing.

    Are you ready for a laugh?  Join us at the MinMaxx Theatre at FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton located at 1010 Main Street East, Milton.

    From the website:

    Deconstructing a chef's journey from food to comedy Ali Hassan's career plans started off as simply as anyone's: become a chef, get a food show on television, get a second food show on television, be the face of the network and have oven mitts with his face on them. This show is a hilarious exposition of Ali's journey in and out of the culinary world in which he spent 12 years. Think Eat, Pray, Love. Minus the Prayer.

    ESTATE PLANNING & SETTLEMENT


    Convenor:  Ruth Gagnon

    When was the last time you looked at your Will and POA?  What is Probate anyway?  Has someone named you as an Executor?  

    Who did you name as your Executor?  Does it need to be updated? Maybe your favorite, you are named an Executor!!  So what is your role?  Did you know it typically takes 16 - 24 months to resolve an Estate? Get some expert guidance on Estate Planning and Settlement.

    Clear Estates gives us a refresher on these topics and covers many more from foreign assets to assets / liabilities and their distribution, taxes and their clearances.

    ClearEstate’s is going to help us to demystify the responsibilities of an estate executor and explain the process as painlessly and efficiently as possible. Settling a loved one’s estate can be emotionally draining, time-consuming, and even expensive if you’re not careful.

    Heavy reliance on lawyers and accountants can add up quickly and eat away at a sizeable part of a loved one’s estate. We will be given some guidance to empower you to settle a loved one’s estate efficiently and confidently.

    This is not a sales pitch, but for our awareness, ClearEstate’s will share how they can help to support grieving families by completely removing estate settlement from their concerns. ClearEstate’s will empower estate executors and pre-planners and serve as a helping hand through the overall estate processes. 

    The cost for this event is $5/member.  We will be going to Ned Devine's for lunch after this session.  Please register for this session and select your meal choices.
