    Most of you have participated several times and you are awesome.  For those that are new to participating… the clinic is for First Responders.  You can come for an hour or stay for 4 hours.   We are witnesses to the documents being drafted by the attorneys and also notarize the documents.  We also staff a sign-in table for the First Responders and assist them with any questions they might have about the forms.


    Bring your Notary stamp, or just your pen; we need witnesses as well as notaries to support the next Wills for Heroes. We meet between nine and ten am at the Hillsborough Bar Association, Chester H. Ferguson Law Center, 1610 N. Tampa St., Tampa FL 33602. More info at: http://www.hillsbar.com/?page=WillsForHeroes
