PITTSFIELD — “Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate?”, a special program about how to pass on personal belongings, will be held 12:30-2 p.m., Thursdsay, Jan. 16, at the Library. To register, call 487-5880.

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. Come for a step-by-step guide on what to do with your non-titled property when you move, downsize your home or if there is a death in the family.

No matter who you are in the process (parent, spouse, child), the resources that Extension Educator Jane Conroy shares will help families communicate, make decisions and lessen conflict.

Participants can be better prepared to bring up inheritance issues for discussion, prepare a legally appropriate list of non-titled property, and decide what fair means and consider how to deal with conflicts before they arise.
