Attorney Clark Atwell talks about planning estates during St. Johnsbury Rotary meeting
CONFIDENCE AND PREPAREDNESS IN ESTATE PLANNING -- Clarke Atwell, a partner in Gensburg, Atwell & Greaves PLLC in St. Johnsbury, spoke to St. Johnsbury Rotarians about the importance of estate planning during the club's weekly meeting Aug. 3. A native of New York, Atwell moved to the St. Johnsbury area in 1997 after graduating from SUNY Plattsburg in 1989, and Vermont Law School in 1996. Atwell worked for Robert Gensburg, PC from 1996 through 1999, when they formed Gensburg & Atwell, PC. He was a partner in Gensburg, Atwell & Broderick from 2000 to 2009 and a partner in Gensburg & Atwell from 2009 to 2010. In December 2010 Carolyn Greaves joined the practice, which is now known as Gensburg, Atwell & Greaves. Atwell told about the benefits of estate planning, which in the long run, saves families a lot of heartache. Risky situations can be avoided, including what he called the "death lottery" -- the possibility that family members are left out of an inheritance if the deceased has no estate planning in place. Many benefits, financial savings, and peace of mind can be accomplished through estate planning, including the best means of transferring assets, minimizing taxes, establishing guardianship for children and protecting loved ones. Atwell said, "for a few hundred dollars, it is money well spent." For more information, go to gensburgatwellandgreaves.com. Atwell is shown above with Rotarian Liz Kennedy, who is in charge for providing speakers for the month of August for the club.

Lyn Winter, Managing Director of the Weathervane Theatre in Whitefield, New Hampshire speaks at the July 22 meeting of the Littleton Rotary Club. Celebrating the theatre's 50th Gala Anniversary season, Winter has been with the theatre for 23 years and has had the pleasure of seeing an ever-growing network of community relationships and the expansion of year-long operations. She said that it requires a dozen professional actors and a supporting cast of 60 individuals to put together Weathervane's seven shows. All the energy and determination on the main stage is packed into eight weeks and a day. While the play's the thing, there would be no productions without all the people behind the scenes providing music, constructing sets, creating costumes, and feeding and housing everyone. Over a thousand actors contact the Weathervane each season and hundreds are invited to try out. Several dozen lucky hopefuls receive the coveted call back for a second audition. Winter noted that the Gala Anniversary season has something for everyone and features diverse shows.
