In spite of the many events taking place in the area on Saturday, October 15, 2001 the Greater Moncton CARP Chapter successfully hosted two excellent presentations. The spectacular fall weather meant a smaller turnout but it didn’t dampen the enthusiasm of those attending.
David Konning, financial planner with Royal Bank of Canada and regular newspaper columnist enlightened the group with his presentation of “ten things every tax payer and investor in Canada should know and where to find the answers”. Although all the tips did not apply to everyone it was obvious, by those frantically taking notes, that there was some great advice for everyone present.
At your convenience, any where in New Brunswick, David will meet with you and help you make the best financial decisions for your future whether it be in financial planning or investment and retirement planning. He is based in Riverview, New Brunswick and has the expertise you may need.
Betty Rooney representing Hospice Greater Moncton, not to be outdone by the first speaker, gave an enthusiastic and heart warming presentation about the work of Hospice in the Greater Moncton Area. Her commitment to this organization made everyone there understand the importance of Hospice in the Community.
Hospice is a volunteer organization, established in Greater Moncton in 2004, seeking to raise awareness of the unique needs of those who are living with life-limiting illnesses or who are dealing with end-of-life issues. They work within the community by providing the services and support for clients and families within their homes. Betty advises that more and more, people are making the choice to spend their last days at home, and they are there to help. Hospice volunteers are trained to give practical and emotional support during the end of life stages, and through the grieving process.
