    Are you ready for a laugh?  Join us at the MinMaxx Theatre at FirstOntario Arts Centre Milton located at 1010 Main Street East, Milton.

    From the website:

    Deconstructing a chef's journey from food to comedy Ali Hassan's career plans started off as simply as anyone's: become a chef, get a food show on television, get a second food show on television, be the face of the network and have oven mitts with his face on them. This show is a hilarious exposition of Ali's journey in and out of the culinary world in which he spent 12 years. Think Eat, Pray, Love. Minus the Prayer.

    ESTATE PLANNING & SETTLEMENT


    Convenor:  Ruth Gagnon

    When was the last time you looked at your Will and POA?  What is Probate anyway?  Has someone named you as an Executor?  

    Who did you name as your Executor?  Does it need to be updated? Maybe your favorite, you are named an Executor!!  So what is your role?  Did you know it typically takes 16 - 24 months to resolve an Estate? Get some expert guidance on Estate Planning and Settlement.

    Clear Estates gives us a refresher on these topics and covers many more from foreign assets to assets / liabilities and their distribution, taxes and their clearances.

    ClearEstate’s is going to help us to demystify the responsibilities of an estate executor and explain the process as painlessly and efficiently as possible. Settling a loved one’s estate can be emotionally draining, time-consuming, and even expensive if you’re not careful.

    Heavy reliance on lawyers and accountants can add up quickly and eat away at a sizeable part of a loved one’s estate. We will be given some guidance to empower you to settle a loved one’s estate efficiently and confidently.

    This is not a sales pitch, but for our awareness, ClearEstate’s will share how they can help to support grieving families by completely removing estate settlement from their concerns. ClearEstate’s will empower estate executors and pre-planners and serve as a helping hand through the overall estate processes. 

    The cost for this event is $5/member.  We will be going to Ned Devine's for lunch after this session.  Please register for this session and select your meal choices.

    It’s time to laugh with Ron James a Shantero Production coming to you at the FirstOntario Arts Centre.  Tickets for this event are only available until December 15th, but please use the waitlist as I can always try and get more.  The cost is $68.50/member and tickets are non-refundable as they will be purchased well in advance of the show.

    From the FirstOntario Arts Centre Website:

    Canada's stand-out amongst 'stand-ups', award-winning comedian RON JAMES has been selling out theatres for over 20 years with his marathon, side-splitting performances. Marshalling a comedian's eye for satire and a writer's ear for language, Ron takes his audience on a breath-taking, non-stop roller coaster ride, cutting a wide swath through contemporary culture with a razor-sharp wit, uncompromising standard and unique, poetically honed delivery.

    Along with five seasons starring in his own series, "The Ron James Show", his record breaking nine critically acclaimed one-hour comedy specials fast became a New Year's Eve viewing tradition for millions of Canadians. Not to be sidelined by the pandemic, he capitalized on lockdown after lockdown and wrote his first book, 'All Over the Map: Rambles and Ruminations from the Canadian Road'', released by publishing giant Penguin-Random House, September 28th. With the light looking brighter every day at the end of the tunnel, Canada''s #1 road warrior is back where he belongs: live onstage delivering laughs face to face to audiences sitting shoulder to shoulder, coast to coast clear cross the Big Wide Open!

    Check out some of his video clips at http://www.ronjames.ca/video/
