Amherstburg has poised itself to be ready for blossom season with an application to the Communities in Bloom (CIB); provincial edition, but that’s not all! The popular Amherstburg Garden Tour has aligned with National Garden Day, Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20, 2015 for a new and improved program.
CIB is a Canadian, non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement. The Town of Amherstburg last participated in 1998 as a finalist.
In addition, The Amherstburg Garden Tour has changed dates stemming from a bill that was tabled in the House of Commons declaring the Friday before each Father’s Day as Canada’s “National Garden Day”. Besides presenting eight magnificent, private gardens, new activities include a “Garden Tour Stroll” down a designated street, artisans, tai chi demonstrations and winery participation. The event will be held on Friday June 19th from 4:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 20th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 each.
“Amherstburg is deemed as one of the prettiest towns in Southwest Ontario with its outstanding gardens and public spaces. We are thrilled to make application for the Communities In Bloom competition and that the Amherstburg Horitcultural Society is working together with Amherstburg Parks and Tourism and Culture department on its 30th anniversary event!” comments Anne Rota; manager of Tourism and Culture for the Town of Amherstburg.”

Estate Planning Seminar - Tuesday March 24th

Posted March 11, 2015 @ 1:10PM

Are a Power of Attorney? Are you the Executor of a Will?

Are you worried about how estate assets will be distributed amongst family members?

Are your parents in a Long Term Care facility and you are managing their finances?

Do you know how Canadians are taxed upon death?

Terry & Alynn Godfroy of Godfroy Financial Group & Anglin Financial Management
Invite you to a complimentary education seminar
Estate Planning, including an Overview of the New Probate Process in Ontario
Estate planning is essential for individuals wanting to transfer assets to family members, charitable causes, or others in an orderly fashion. The legislation dealing with the probate process was amended in 2011. In January 2015 Ontario introduced its new Estate Information Return, which estate trustees (i.e., executors) will need to file.
Estate plans should be revisited to ensure that they remain appropriate. This session will cover the new probate process and highlight planning opportunities, including probate bypass techniques.

Guest Speaker:
Lea M. Koiv, B.Comm., CPA, CMA, CA, TEP, CFP
National Director, Retail Tax & Estate Planning
Retail Markets, Manulife Financial

Date: Tuesday, March 24, 2015
Time: 5:00pm to 6:30pm
Location: Caboto Club
Details: Refreshments will be provided
Please RSVP by Monday, March 23, 2015 to info@anglinfinancial.com or call us at 519-258-1995
