Passing Down Non-Titled Personal Property Workshops to be held in June
Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate?
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.
The Family and Consumer Sciences Extension Agent will hold two workshops on passing down personal, non-titled belongings on Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 from 10AM - 12 PM and Tuesday, June 11th, 2013 from 6-8 PM at the Virginia Cooperative Extension Amelia Office inside of the County Administration Complex in Dunn St. This seminar will provide you with practical information about the inheritance and transfer of non-titled personal property; and help families communicate, make decisions, and lessen conflict. Call Jane Henderson at (804) 561-2481 or email her at email@example.com for more information. The first 10 participants receive a free workbook.

Camp Millionaire - Financial Literacy Day Camp, June 17-21, 2013
Increasingly, recent high school and college graduates lack the skills to responsibly manage their income when they enter the work force. Research shows that the best way to assure this does not happen is to teach them these skills before the age of 16. Virginia Cooperative Extension’s Family and Consumer Sciences Agent in Amelia will hold a “Camp Millionaire” Financial literacy day camp from Monday June 17 to Friday June 21 from 9 AM to 4 PM for 7th and 8th graders.
Camp Millionaire is a 5 day, all day event in which students will learn the basics of finances: how to save, set goals, create and stick to a budget, the dangers of debt, ins and outs of investing, and charitable contributions; as well as gain a conceptual understanding of wealth and the habits of wealthy people from Extension Agents and financial education volunteers with the use of activities centered around “The Money Game,” an interactive game with real world, group simulations. At least one field trip is planned for the youth. Enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis.. To sign up, please print and either mail or drop off the application found at the link on this page. All pre-registrations must be postmarked by May 15th. There is a $25 fee if you register by May 4th. After that the fee is $40. For more information, contact Jane Henderson, Extension Agent – Family and Consumer Sciences at firstname.lastname@example.org or (804)561-2481.
