NEWPORT — Life is short, make it sweet. There is no better way to make life sweeter than taking advantage of the many treats offered at the Newport Senior Center.

Wouldn’t it be refreshing to learn how to protect your house and lifetime of savings from a prolonged nursing-home stay before it is too late? We know this information is important to most adults as they age and we have Elder Law Attorney, Edward “Ted” Beasley scheduled to be at the center on Wednesday, Oct. 30 for a free legal seminar to share with you just how to do that.

Attorney Beasley, former chairman of the American Bar Association Elder Law Committee, will present a lively and engaging seminar in everyday language to help you understand how to plan for disability, how to avoid probate, strategies for passing assets safely and efficiently and how to protect your children’s inheritance from creditors, divorce or drug dependency.

This is a free program that you do not want to miss. The program will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. We do ask that individuals register in advance by stopping by the center and signing up to reserve a seat.

If you are unable to stop, please call 863-3177 and ask to be added to the list or call Beasley & Ferber at 1-800-370-5010. Preregistration will give Attorney Beasley an idea of how much literature to bring for individuals to take home.

Some of you may be saying it would be mint to have a little extra money to have to worry about protecting. Well, we may be able to help with that as well. Although we cannot guarantee a win, we can get you to MGM Casino to give it your best shot on Monday, Oct. 14. There are only a few seats left, so if you want to reserve your seat or make sure your reservation is secure, call 863-4422 and make sure if you are a member, your $45 is paid. Non-members need to make sure their $50 is paid.

The fee will include roundtrip transportation and driver gratuity. The bus will leave the Newport Senior Center at 7 a.m. sharp and Claremont Walmart at 7:15 a.m. sharp. Individuals will also receive a $15 slot voucher and a $15 food voucher, leaving the actual cost to you only $15 for members and $20 for non-members.

As we head into Oct. 13, crafters will be creating their very own scarecrow for display on Monday. The scarecrow display can be used as a candle and potpourri holder and some participants are planning to use it as a candy dish.

If you were not able to participate in this class, there will be another painting class on Oct.15, at 1 p.m. This class will be two Halloween painting projects. One project will be a ghost wine glass candle holder and the second project will be a witch mason jar artificial floral arrangement. Both of these projects are avail for viewing. This class will be $5.

Be sure to stop by the sweetest shop around and see everything we have to offer. You just might be surprised!
