On Saturday, Sept. 12, a program at Arcadia, cosponsored by the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division, is helping military veterans, emergency medical personnel, police officers, and firefighters with free basic estate planning. Wills for Heroes will assist these and other first responders in preparing and finalizing basic estate planning documents (wills, living wills, powers of attorneys, etc.). The program, which is the only such event recently hosted by a university, will be staffed by several lawyer volunteers.

It is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 12, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the Castle Rose and Mirror Rooms.
