Happy New Year to everyone, with fingers crossed that it will be better than the last one! We’ve gotten through this Pandemic together. Let’s not forget that and keep in touch with one another on a regular basis. The telephone committee has a new chair, Joy Walsh; please make sure that she has your current contact information. Thelma, thank you for your years of service in this position, especially for the yeoman’s job you and your committee members have done this past year. The Social Security office, via National, has sent out a notice that scammers have crawled out from under their rocks again. If you get a call from the Social Security office, HANG UP. This office, as well as the IRS, is required by law to contact you in writing via “snail” mail of any issues. Never give a caller your Social Security Number or any other financial information. If a telephone number is visible, notify the local Social Security Office. Welcome to a new year with new opportunities and new challenges. I’m looking forward to working with our new officers and committee chairs.
