End-of-Life Legalities

 Imprimer   Envoyer 

On his 18th birthday, his father asked him if he had his incapacity mandate yet. No, he wasn't expecting to die or to be injured anytime soon, but then the nature of accidents is that they are unexpected. An incapacity mandate can make your life, and the lives of your loved ones, a whole lot easier if you are unexpectedly incapacitated. Everyone over the age of 18 should have one, says Me. Tim Leonard, notary.

That's what it means to be born into a family of notaries, and that's a bit of the wealth of information that Me. Leonard will be offering in a conference-luncheon with a question-and-answer period on Tuesday, May 12, in Cookshire. His topic is Wills, Living Wills, Incapacity Mandates, Powers of Attorney, do-not-resuscitate orders, and related legal issues. Let's simply call it End-of-life Legalities.

The conference is from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the 2nd floor activity room at the Manoir de l'Eau vive, 210 Principale East, Cookshire. It's in English and is free of charge. All are welcome. The buffet luncheon will be catered by the Manoir de l'Eau vive, and a donation of $5 is suggested to help offset the lunch expenses. Please register in advance for lunch by calling 819-560-8540 x 9. Registration deadline: Friday, May 8.

This event is being organized by the Centre d'action bénévole (Volunteer Action Centre) du Haut-Saint-François, at the suggestion of the Bury and Sawyerville English-speaking caregiver support groups. Info: or 819-560-8540 x 9.

Homegrown is the best. Sometimes that's as true in music as it is in food. Case in point: Terry Howell & Friends. He's an Island Brook native and his friends are from the area, too. They are treating area residents to a Country, Gospel, & Bluegrass Concert this Friday at 7 p.m. at the Trinity United Church, 190 Principale West, Cookshire. Proceeds go to help support the church's maintenance, such as painting some of the exterior and repairing the front gallery railings. Regular admission is $10; students, $6. Light refreshments will be served. Info: 819-875-3796.

A stroke is a brain attack. It's the third leading cause of death in Canada, and a major cause of disability. But many of us cannot recognize the signs of a stroke, and fewer know what to do. Find out about the FAST approach at a videoconference by Andréane Tardif of the Heart and Stroke Foundation. She is responsible for the Foundation's Promote Recovery Strategy in Quebec. Tardif will teach participants how to reduce the risk factors for strokes, how to recognize the signs of a stroke, and how to react fast. "The faster you act by calling 9-1-1, the better your chances of survival and recovery are. Time lost is brain lost."

The videoconference is on Wednesday, May 13, at 10 a.m. to noon, at the Eaton Valley Community Learning Centre (CLC). It's located at the far end of the Pope Memorial School, 523 Stokes St., Bury. All are welcome. No fee. Info: Kim Fessenden, 819-872-3771.

The second annual Heritage Golf Tournament is on Saturday, May 16, at the Coaticook Golf Club. Treat yourself to a round of golf and benefit the Eaton Corner Museum, all in one stroke. All levels are welcome. For $75, you get golf and cart, chances to win lots of prizes donated by local businesses, and a delicious supper. Get your friends together and make up a foursome for $300. If you prefer, for $25 you can have just supper. Places are limited, so register early by contacting Steve Lepitre at 819-875-3685 or emailing Deadline: May 10.

And plan ahead to hear Jody Robinson speak about the Eastern Townships Resource Centre at the Museum's AGM on May 22 at 7 p.m. in the Museum Church building in Eaton Corner.

Newport's recreation group Loisirs 4 Horizons is organizing a huge community garage and plant sale for Saturday, June 6. It will mark Neighbour's Day.

Your sale could be in front of your residence, in the Municipal Hall parking lot in Island Brook, or in the outdoor pavilion across the road. Signage and publicity will be supplied. To join in the fun, contact Anne at 819-875-1785. Info:
