SeniorCare Inc. will host a presentation by Attorney Natalie A. Simon addressing concerns we have as we age and steps we can take to protect our financial interests on Thursday, April 7, 2016, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the SeniorCare offices located at 49 Blackburn Center in Gloucester, MA.
Attorney Simon will address concerns about losing assets if it becomes necessary to enter a nursing facility. In addition, she will discuss how best to prepare legally, including the creation of critical documents (i.e., Health Care Proxy, Durable Power of Attorney and Advance Directives). Finally, Attorney Simon will discuss trusts and who needs them, who does not, whether or not it is important to avoid probate, and the myths and misinformation that are causing confusion in this important decision-making process.

On Friday March 11 GAAC is extremely fortunate to have Dr. John Hobbs with a presentation on his hands-on work in the Apollo era, analyzing moon rocks at Cornell University. John has an amazing, first-hand story to tell. If you’ve always wanted to meet and ask questions of someone personally involved in the science results from the Apollo Moon missions, this is your chance.
This one promises to be a lot of fun.
Dr. Hobbs received a Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from the University of New Hampshire, and spent a year as a National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council Postdoctoral Fellow at the U.S. Army Materials and Mechanics Research Laboratory.
John also put in a year as a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in the Chemistry Department at Cornell University. It was at Cornell that he performed trace analysis on the Apollo 11 lunar samples.
More recently, John has had a long career developing security equipment for the Federal Aviation Administration.
Save the date! Come on in and enjoy an evening of great conversation, a terrific first-hand account of an important, historical series of events, and yummy things to eat and drink. All are welcome. We’re easy to find, the parking is free and plentiful, the people are always friendly, and there is no cost. It’s all good.
GAAC meets on the second Friday of the month at 8:00 pm, at the Lanesville Community Center, 8 Vulcan Street in the Lanesville neighborhood of Gloucester. For more information on the club see their website at http://gaac.us, their Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/GAACpage, or on twitter, @GAACster.
