Tips from an Executrix
 What to do with their stuff when they’re gone? Join Janet Olexy on Tuesday, January 23rd at 7:00 PM. Janet and her twin sister were caregivers to their parents for over a decade until their parents’ deaths. Afterwards, the twins sorted through a lifetime of their parents’ saved possessions. Learn their multistep process for dealing with estate items, and gain resources and creative ideas to honor your loved ones and their treasured belongings. Please register in advance online.

Rush Readers’ Book Club
Two dates Thursday, January 25th and Thursday February 1st from 7:00-9:00 PM. Our Rush Bicentennial selection will be Northanger Abby by Jane Austen, published after her death in late December, 1817. It is a satire on the Gothic novels that were popular in the late 1700s. The main character, Catherine, entertains us as she gains experiences and discovers that she is not like other women who crave wealth or social acceptance. Join us for coffee dessert and lively discussion. Register in advance online.
