Everyone is welcome to attend and invite their friends.

A will is especially important if you want to decide where your belongings go. An up-to-date will is an important document that everyone should have.  Don’t go without having a will. Without one, state law will determine what happens to your property. The state makes the choice. The state follows unalterable laws that will not consider your wishes and desires unless you have this important document.  For the past three decades, 70% - 80% of Americans pass without having a will. Reasons why we avoid preparing the willReasons why you should consider a trust.

You can adjust your current will with a codicil. If you intend to include Scouting in your will, you may become a member of the Scouting Heritage Society. Join the Scouting Heritage Society by completing a letter of intent form or online.
