September 27, 2012 – Coldwater, MI – On Thursday, October 4, the Branch County Community Foundation will wrap up a year long celebration with a gathering of donors and community members at the CHC Community Care and Conference Center. The event will feature author, Carolyn Friend, co-author of “The Legacy Conversation: The Missing Gem in Wealth Planning.” This is a free event with light refreshments beginning at 5:30 and the program beginning at 6:15.

The book has been known as a invaluable contribution to the art of legacy planning.
