OUR NEXT MEETING
All meetings are free and open to the public
The next meeting is Tuesday, April 1st at 7:00 PM in Multi-Use Room 3 at the Fort Collins Senior Center.
Are you prepared for a natural disaster (or any loss of your property)? The Insurance Information Institute (http://www2.iii.org/about-us.html) says that "having an up-to-date home inventory will help you:
- Purchase enough insurance to replace the things you own.
- Get your insurance claims settled faster.
- Substantiate losses for your income tax return."
There are many ways to create that inventory. We will examine several free software applications for this purpose at the April meeting.
