Critical Legal Documents In A Flash…On A Flash(Drive)!!!

So you are prudent and finally visit a lawyer to create or update your will, trust, or other critical documents such as powers of attorney, medical care directives, etc.

At the end of the process, you receive a collection of legal documents with instructions as to how and where to keep them…


If you used attorney Bridget Mackay, you now get something in addition to the paper documents…A white plastic card the size of a business card that is really a flash drive containing all of the documents in pdf format…

So where is the flash drive?

Well, if you press on the card. it pops open…


Trust me, there are times when it is VERY convenient to have these documents available on this easy-to-carry card when it becomes necessary to work with a financial institution or a medical facility.  You can leave the large folder of paper documents in your safe or safety deposit box.


COTS Family Center…opens June 27th

Petaluma’s COTS (Committee on the Shelterless) will open the renovated COTS Family Center on June 27th…


Preparing the facility has required quite an effort by volunteers and others to make the buildings ready for use.

Today, volunteers worked on finishing touches…painting, cleaning, assembling furniture, etc.  I had the opportunity to make a few photos of today’s efforts.

8:30 am the volunteers assembled…


Then they went to work…
