National AARP continues to share current Covid-19 information every Thursday at 10:00 AM PDT; phone # is 855-274-9507.
Many thanks again to Thelma Bridges and her telephone committee; they are continuing to contact all our members every week, checking to see if they are safe and have all the items they need. A device as simple as a telephone can assist us in keeping our AARP bonds with each other. It goes without saying that members who have email and phones should also keep up any contacts they have with other members.
I coordinated my first general meeting on Zoom Tuesday, August 18; thanks to those of you who attended and saw a great presentation on museum operations during the COVID pandemic. Our next general meeting is Tuesday, September 15, but will be earlier at 9 AM; see the “September Meeting” Note for more details.
Thanks to Nancy Tepperman, who served as our Treasurer for the last four or five months. Sharon Levine has offered to accept the Treasurer position and the Assistant Treasurer position will be filled by Leona Fails.
REMINDER: As of the beginning of July, National AARP has cancelled all in-person AARP events until the end of the year, including in-person general meetings. We will continue to hold our meetings using Zoom or other technologies until further notice.
Please read this issue of the Dispatch carefully, as there is a lot of information about current happenings in the Campbell area. Please check our chapter website at campbellaarp.org for information on positions with the Red Cross. Thanks to Lynda Martinez, Shelly Schwartz, Marilyn Clough and Veronika Phillips for Glad Tidings and Jokes in the previous Dispatch.
