April 7th - Cosco Seniors Wellness Institute on Representation Agreement with Terry Wright
  • Representation Agreement. This legal and binding document allows an individual to have someone else speak for them in health and personal care, and routine financial affairs if they are incapable of Page 6 speaking for themselves. There are two types of Representation Agreements in BC and we discuss the importance and differences of the two types of document, who to consider appointing to be your Representative, as well as their duties and responsibilities.
  • Terry Wright - experience with IBM, and Strata Management, volunteered with several Boards and Councils, and have done many workshops in Frauds and Scams, and Personal Planning (Wills, POA, Representation agreements, Advance Directives, Joint Bank Accounts.)


April 14th Show Me the Honey: Adventures of an Accidental Apiarist with Dave Doroghy
  • Dave Doroghy is a Greater Vancouver resident who recently wrote a book about keeping bees on the back deck of his floating home in Ladner. The New York Times called the humorous self-deprecating book “Witty and Honest”. SHOW ME THE HONEY: ADVENTURES OF AN ACCIDENTAL APIARIST is a lighthearted account of his misadventures.  In his presentation Dave will explain what bee keeping is really all about and give you a new appreciation for the honey you slather on your toast each morning.
