Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate @ Pottorf Hall
May 13 @ 6:00 pm

Nearly everyone has personal belongings such as photographs, collections, jewelry or furniture that hold meaning for them and members of their family or friends.  What will happen to your non-titled items when you die or can no longer use them? Who will decide how your belongings are dispersed? Decisions about personal property are an issue for everyone, but may be ignored until a crisis occurs.  Would you rather make these decisions now while you are able? Research has identified six factors to consider when planning to distribute non-titled property.  In the Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate seminar they will discuss those six factors so you can begin to make a plan for your belongings. The program will be offered on Wednesday, May 13th at 6:00 pm at Pottorf Hall.  This program is ideal for owners of personal property, family members, estate executors, and anyone who assists persons with these decisions.  The program is free, but please register by calling 785-537-6359, emailing sriffey@ksu.edu.

Beginning Cable Knitting Class @ Senior Center
May 26 @ 9:30 am

Have you ever wanted to knit cables but been too afraid to try? Then this class is for you.  They will knit a small cabled coaster.  It’s easier than it looks.  They will supply the pattern.  You will need a pair of size 8 knitting needles, a cable needle, and less than a skein of worsted weight yarn in a light color (no black, dark gray, or dark brown, please). You should already know how to cast on, bind off, and knit and purl.  If you’ve done those things before, but are hazy on the details they can help you catch up before the class meets.  This event will be held at the Senior Center on Tuesday, May 26th at 9:30 am.
