Girl Talk is a series of discussions designed to facilitate communication about the future between fifth and sixth grade girls and their moms. “Parenting preteens has always been a challenge,” said Katie Porter, Unity Point CMA. “Preteen girls are trying to understand what is happening to their bodies, what guidelines to follow and how to respond to the constant media messages surrounding them. The Girl Talk program promotes positive self-esteem while helping daughters and moms or other female role models communicate about the future.” Girl Talk is sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Clarke County. The dates are Monday, December 2nd, mothers only, and then December 3rd, 9th, and 16th, for moms and daughters. Each of the four sessions lasts about two hours, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The sessions will be held at the Clarke County Extension Office in Osceola.
Talking about estate planning is hard. Making an estate plan can be even harder. Where do I start? What information do I need? Even if you have an estate plan, has it been updated since 2009? Union County Extension is sponsoring Evaluating Your Estate Plan for farm families in southwest Iowa on December 10 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Southwestern Community College in Creston. Topics include the language of estate planning, needed information, setting goals, and gift, estate, and inheritance taxes.
