The Portsmouth Shipyard
On October 9, I had the opportunity to present an estate planning seminar at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. I have been doing these presentations for many years and have watched as the shipyard has struggled through some hard times. This week, the atmosphere at the shipyard seemed more positive than ever. When I did a seminar a couple of years ago right after the vote to save the yard, there was excitement, but now there seems to be a quiet confidence. People do not seem concerned about losing their jobs, and I expect that is a feeling that they have not had in the past. It was a pleasure to see the energy of this place that plays such an important role in seacoast life.
