You're not Warren Buffett... You're not even Jimmy Buffett. But you know you need an estate plan. It's not safe to assume a last will and testament is adequate to protect you family and your assets. Even the most carefully created will doesn't defend your heirs and beneficiaries from estate taxes, expenses, publicity and delays of probate. What about your spouse or elderly parents with long-term care needs, potential future income, capital gains or estate tax issues? While estate planning is often about planning for the future, there are actions you can take today to ensure your beneficiaries, including your chosen charities receive what you intend. This interactive lecture-discussion will explore a variety of tools, including wills, gift annuities, tax considerations and other strategies that will preserve a foundation for the future.

Historically, Finland has been dominated by Sweden and then Russia. Ultimately, the nation gained its independent during the Russian Revolution. Two decades later, it was invaded by the Soviet Union. The Winter War that resulted was brutal and while Finland did well initially, ultimately the Soviet Union crushed the nation and took land. The story did not end there, however; Finland with the help of Germany, attacked the Soviet Union was the goal to regain lost territory. The second conflagration resulted in a high death toll and while Finland took much of its land back, it was only temporary. Ultimately, as Germany began losing to the Allies, the Soviet Union defeated Finland.

Finland’s story is a fascinating one offering important historical concepts and idea. Following a brief description of Finish history, this talk will analyze what happened, why it happened, and generally look at the motivations of those concerned.
