Advanced Care & After Death Directives Workshop
By settling the matters of your world and making decisions ahead of time, you leave a gift to your loved ones – the information they will need to make decisions on your behalf.
To begin the process, we will be offering a 9 hour class, held over 3 Saturdays, February 20, 27, and March 5, 2016, meeting from 9 am till noon. You will attend all three classes. The fee is $75. The goal is that you will be educated about your options and leave with a notarized set of directives.

Jubilee! is also offering you the opportunity to revise and update your documents. On Saturday, February 13 from 9 am till noon, we are offering a REFRESHER course for those of you who attended our documents class in the past. Please bring your completed documents. The fee is $20.  Contact Linda Siegall at lsiegall@yahoo.com or at 828-280-1091 to sign up for either workshop.

Join the Conversation…
At the Jubilee! Book Discussion Group beginning on Monday, February 8, at 1:30 pm, as we begin to explore a new book—The Social Animal: The Hidden Sources of Love, Character, and Achievement, by David Brooks.  In this #1 New York Times Bestseller, Brooks “reveals the deeply social aspect of our minds and exposes the bias in modern culture that overemphasizes rationalism, individualism, and IQ.” Questions?

Latin Neighbor Team (LNT) Project
“We are here, we are here for all of us,” that’s our song at the end of our Celebrations. The Latin Neighbor Team expands Jubilee! outreach to include immigrants. You can give families in our area a hand up and get chores around the house done efficiently. Hire an immigrant and experience a job well done for a reasonable hourly rate. With LNT assistance, you can: line up an excellent worker to power wash your deck, clear out the growth behind your house, do garden work, clean house, clear snow, keep the elderly company, plant trees, prepare the soil for your garden, paint, build shelving in your garage, get what you need done! To arrange for reliable workers, contact Marian Patten, LNT, 828-252-5826. A Spanish-speaking member of LNT comes with the worker to the job interview to translate critical details about the work, the schedule, and pay. Workers understand English related to work to be accomplished. You get a job well done and the worker supports a family. LNT meets the first Wednesday of the month.
