In today's topsy-turvy economic climate, we can use all the financial advice we can get.

With that in mind, the Kingston Hospital Foundation offers some much-needed assistance with three free financial planning seminars at its Kingston Hospital campus.

The seminars all will take place in the Broadway A conference room from 4 to 5 p.m. on Oct. 18, Nov. 1 and Nov. 8.

The first two seminars -- "Legal Documents Every New Yorker Should Know About" and "Trusts" -- will be presented by attorney Kathleen Dittus.

The third, "Personal Estate Planning," will be presented by Craig R. Sickler, a certified public accountant at Sickler, Torchia, Allen & Churchill.

Kingston Hospital is located at 396 Broadway in Kingston.
