Jay Einstein:
"This weekend, as I delivered 70 dinners to homeless residents of the Rural Development Center in East Vineland, you might have thought I was giving them each $1,000 Christmas gift. Their appreciation, gratefulness, and sheer surprise that a group of caring volunteers would go to the trouble of preparing and delivering a delicious hot spaghetti meal, with meatballs, bread, butter, salad and dessert was over the top. I wish all of you who volunteered your time, on a Sunday morning, to help the less fortunate among us, had as satisfying feeling as I did.
Thanks to you all for your fellowship, unselfish giving and attitude to help our fellowmen when they are not quite as fortunate as others, you truly are the best and can feel fulfilled to doing the work of the almighty, in your unselfish efforts."
Sherry Soutierre responded with:
"What a great morning of fellowship!
I had the same experience at Bethany Grace Church. They were so appreciative for the meals and could not thank us enough. I wish we could do something like this more often. People in our community should not go hungry. Maybe we can consider doing food drives or anything else we can think of."
Dawn Hunter:

      January 26, 2023 Thursday Evening Meeting

Our guest speaker, Attorney William “Bill” Gilson from the Vineland law firm of Lipman, Antonelli, Batt, Gilson, Rothman & Capasso is a specialist when it comes to Estate Planning. While some of us may think it a dull subject, Bill made it a lively, informative and very interesting presentation. His talk sparked many comments and questions demonstrating that our members were truly interested in the topic.
Here are some of the most common estate planning problems, according to Bill:
Location of the last will and testament, power of attorney and advanced directive
  *Do you know where it is?
  *Is it the original document or is it a photocopy?
  *Who else knows where it is?
Alterations to original documents
It is not uncommon to see handwritten notes on a Will, Power of Attorney or Advanced Directive.
This doesn’t make it legal!
  *Has it been revoked?
  *Has it been modified?
The one likely guarantee? Court intervention to enforce it is a likelihood, if it is possible.
Beneficiary Designations
Most often occurs in non-probate assets (IRA, 401(K), 403(b), annuities, life insurance).
  *Who is the primary beneficiary?
  *Who are the contingent or secondary beneficiaries?
   *Is a beneficiary disabled?
   *Income tax/inheritance tax considerations.
How are assets titled?
  *Applies to Real Estate and Personal Property such as stocks, CDs, cash, automobiles, etc,
  *Jointly held accounts versus individual or tenancy in common accounts.
  *How it is held may prevent a gift from occurring.
Special considerations
  *Use of a gift list
  *Use of a life estate deed
  *Real Estate Tax Considerations
  *Senior Citizen Discount
  *Surviving Spouse of a Veteran
  *Preserving the Homestead Rebate if home is sold
Bill offered to help members with  specific questions if they email him for more information (
A great turnout at our Thursday evening meeting and great conversations!
