Coca-Cola DRIP UTMA Age of Maturity

My Youngest Sister’s Coca-Cola UTMA Matured: A Celebration Dinner

At long last, the day has arrived.  My youngest sister, twelve years my junior, turned 21.  This means the UTMA gift I made to her through an initial birthday transfer of a framed share of The Coca-Cola Company, and that my parents largely funded via the Coca-Cola Direct Stock Purchase Plan by kicking in $25 to $50 per month after…
