We hope this newsletter finds you and your family well and excited  with plans, big and small, for the upcoming summertime season. 

As a reminder, we too have made plans to enjoy this time of year with family and friends and as a result there will be occasions when we may not be staffed at full capacity, but there will always be someone on hand to assist you.

Whatever you have on the agenda this summer, we wish you great joy, new adventures and special memories to add to your collection.

DOLLARS FOR AUTISM

We took part in sponsoring the 6th Annual Autism Charity Golf Tournament on June 1, 2015
.  What a great day!

The Golf Classic raised over $19,500  which enables them to continue to offer meaningful programs, resources and support for families living with autism in Simcoe County. 

We had a few great Seminar's this spring that added tremendous value for those who took part:
  • Special Needs Planning
  • The Role of the Executor
Stay tuned for our fall line-up !! 

If you are interested in learning more about a specific topic, please let us know and we can look at adding it to our
 Seminar series.
