PAWS to R.E.A.D. with a Reading Education Assistance Dog!

Animals are ideal reading companions because they foster relaxation, lower blood pressure, listen attentively, do not  judge, or criticize, and allow children to proceed at their own pace. When a dog is "listening" fear of failure is removed allowing a child to learn more effectively. The dog's handler is a skilled facilitator who provides subtle support.

Our R.E.A.D. teams are volunteers and do not get paid. Please call ahead to confirm scheduling. 920.748.6160

Who Gets Grandma's Yellow Pie Plate: The Inheritance Process

Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate: The Inheritance Process

Tuesday, October 4th @ 2:00 P.M.
 
Join Shelley Tidemann, Wisconsin Association for Home and Community Education (WAHCE) State Liaison, on Tuesday, October 4th at 2:00 P.M. for a presentation about the inheritance process at Ripon Public Library. Passing on non-titled personal possessions can be a daunting task. This informative session will help you prepare for inheritance issues following a death of family crisis, during a move to an apartment or nursing home, or in preparing an individual’s estate.


Research has identified six primary factors to consider in the process of transferring non-titled property. Planning ahead allows for more choices, the opportunity for communication and hopefully fewer misunderstandings during these difficult transitions.


Shelley Tidemann is the Family Living Educator and Co-Dept. Head for UW Extension Fond du Lac County. She has been an Extension Educator for 32 years and her work addresses financial literacy education, human development and leadership education.
