    Aloha friends, welcome to the Dr. Patch Laughter column! Yep, that’s my new Dr. Patch Shay hat, and you will be amazed that it was indeed a gift from THE Dr. Patch Adams. I met Patch about 30 years ago at a medical conference in Boston, and we “hit it off immediately” as the old saying goes. He is an amazing, incredible, gifted human with a heart beyond imagination. He goes all over the world with his free medical clinics, mostly to very medically underserved areas. I have been able to attend only once but, oh wow, what an experience. I am blessed by his friendship and we continue to stay in touch. So that’s the new photo. Hope you like it!

    Will vs. Trust led by John G. Roth will be held from 10 a.m.—noon July 1. It’s possible to use a will or a trust to say who you want to receive your property after your life, but each accomplishes different goals. Learn how trusts can sometimes be used to accomplish additional goals, such as avoiding the probate process, protecting property in the event of a lawsuit or divorce, minimizing taxes and reducing the chances of disputes following a person’s death. There will be time for questions and answers.
