Financial & Estate Planning for 2018 -- February 8, 2018 

Topics which are on the mind of many TTNers – especially since the passage of the new tax codes! The evening’s presenters were Beth Cartwright, Mass Mutual Metro New York, and Tamara Stack, Esq., expert lawyer in estate planning, wills, POAs, health care proxies, and elder care legal issues.

The detail and wealth of information on the latter was impressive and compelling. Attendants took lots of notes, and Ms. Stack provided a comprehensive handout covering the myriad of vital details.

Explore NYC -- “Hotbed” – Women’s Historical Exhibit – February 13, 2018

WOW! What can you say about this fabulous tour at the NY Historical Society/Center for Women’s History other than -- amazing, super, revealing of the roots of the early women’s suffragist movements -- and (with men) for fair working conditions, racial justice, and birth control -- much of the inspiration and activities based in the Greenwich Village of the times? Whew!

*** You really need to watch for each new Explore NYC event in the weekly E-Blast to catch up and join these terrific TTN events.  Another history tour, and the popular Art Gallery Tours, are coming up soon!
