Everyone, PLEASE take care of yourselves during this time of fires and, eventually, colder weather. Make sure you have masks when the air is relatively dirty, as it is now. I don’t want anyone to miss the happy, hectic holiday season. TIP: I have found that barbecuing the turkey on Thanksgiving frees up both top and bottom ovens in the kitchen for potatoes, stuffing, etc. Our chapter has been given an opportunity to staff a booth at a Veterans’ Care Fair on Saturday, November 23, at the San Jose Giants Municipal Stadium from 10 am to 3 pm. One of the sponsors is Vietnam Veterans of America, Ch. 201, of which I am a member. I need volunteers to staff a table to advertise AARP services. If you wish to participate and/or know someone in our chapter who might be interested, please let me know by Monday, Nov. 11. Volunteers are expected to staff the booth for the entire five-hour period of the event. Please excuse the late notice. This is definitely a community activity in which we should be involved. I have some familiarity with these ‘care fairs’ as I helped plan and participated in them when I was with the Employment Development Dept.
