Sumter attorney to speak on 'Planning for Incapacity' at Monday meeting

Posted

Sumter attorney Glenn Givens will address members and guests of the Sumter County Genealogical Society at 7:30 p.m. Monday at Swan Lake Presbyterian Church, 912 Haynsworth St. Givens' topic will be "Planning for Incapacity."

Johnny Raffield, spokesman for the society, said Monday's meeting will be the last before the summer break and that it "will deviate from genealogy to learn about an important topic that is relevant for all of us."

Givens will describe and explain the provisions of general durable powers of attorney, health care powers of attorney and living wills. He will also discuss the importance of having an authority assist in completing these documents.

A native of Sumter, Givens joined Kolb, Murphy & Givens Attorneys at Law LLC in November 2010. He provides legal advice on business entities, estate planning, trusts, wills, probate administration and taxation.

The Sumter County Genealogical Society meets monthly from September through May. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to attend. Admission is free to the public, and refreshments are served following the presentation. Interested persons can join the society at the meetings. Membership includes nine monthly newsletters during the year and free use of the Sumter County Genealogical Society Research Center. Annual dues are $30 for an individual membership and $35 for family.

For more information, call the society's research center at (803) 774-3901.
