Upcoming workshop to cover inheriting Grandma's pie plate, other personal property
October 21, 2015
Human Resources will host a family-friendly workshop to discuss inheriting and transferring personal property from noon to 1 p.m. Thursday (Oct. 22) in Stewart Center, Room 204. Registration is due today (Oct. 21). Limited seats are available.
"Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate?" is a workshop that provides practical information about the inheritance and transfer of non-titled personal property. Personal belongings often have special meaning for individuals and family members. Planning to pass on such items -- treasured wedding photo, Grandpa's fishing tackle box, or a well-used yellow pie plate -- can be challenging and may lead to family conflict. Attendees will learn how to begin the process of communicating and making decisions, as well as how to lessen potential conflict. This workshop will be presented by Kathy Murray from Purdue Extension.
The family workshops are open to faculty, staff, students and spouses/same-sex domestic partners. Those attending are encouraged to bring lunch to eat while listening to the presentation. Time for asking questions and networking with other parents and caregivers will be offered.
Individuals with a Purdue career account can register online for this workshop, while those without a career account can email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Additional information on local family-friendly happenings is available on the Family Friendly Purdue Facebook page.
