The Sirocco Team from Northern Vance High School and attorney Lori A. Dutra both gave presentations during the Jan. 17 meeting of the Henderson Business and Professional Women’s Club.

Before dinner was served, the Sirocco Team presented their computer vacuum system to club members. The team discussed its then-upcoming participation in the North Carolina State University Innovations competition. Impressed with the team’s creativity and organization, the club voted to become a sponsor to the team.

After the meal, Lori A. Dutra, an attorney from Oxford provided information regarding legal issues concerning advanced planning. Since women tend to have longer life spans than men, the topic was of particular interest to women. Dutra touched up several items, including: legal plans for health issues Advanced Directives or Health Care Power of Attorney, and the use of memorandums to adjust asset distribution without rewriting a will. Members and guests alike enjoyed her presentation, asking many questions and discussing what they had learned.

The club convenes for dinner and a presentation (of an educational and/or entertaining nature) on the third Tuesday of each month in the Foundation Board Room at Maria Parham Medical Center. The next meeting will take place May 21.
