MROO Wills & Estate Planning Webinar


Life is unpredictable and we never know what might happen. That’s why it’s a good idea to have a plan for our estate and our will so that our loved ones can carry out our wishes when we are gone. Sometimes, things change in our lives and we forget to update our plans or our beneficiaries. That can cause problems or confusion later on. So, it’s important to review our plan regularly and make sure it reflects our current situation and preferences.

Below is information on MROO’s Will & Estate Planning Webinar; you must be a MROO member. It is a one-time fee of $25.00 for a lifetime membership! If you go to the annual Zone meeting – the free lunch is worth that!
