While transferring our Community Service chair responsibilities and with the beginning of a new year, we encourage you to continue “To serve, not be served.” Please use the purple envelope to report your volunteer hours. Meanwhile, enjoy the incredible story of an amazing young artist at the attached link – https://www.facebook.com/yahoonews/videos/288588035290850/
A teacher asked little Johnny if he knew the numbers 1 to 10 well.
“Yes! Of course! My pop taught me, even more than 10!”
“Good. What comes after three?”
“Four,” answered the boy.
“What comes after six?”
“Very good,” said the teacher. “Your dad did a good job. Now, what comes after ten?” “A jack!”

The November program will be a presentation from Sourcewise (formerly known as the Council on Aging) concerning the changes in HICAP (Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program) and in Medicare coverage for 2019.
With the elections on November 6th, neither the U.S. Congress nor the California State Legislature have been in session. If you voted (in person or by mail), you made your voice heard; and for that, America is grateful.
California’s Senate and Assembly will convene a new legislative session beginning December 3rd, 2018.
To renew your membership for 2019, fill out the application on page 4 of the November Newsletter and mail to Shelly’s address, which is on page 2 of the November Newsletter.
Hopefully, many of you helped in your own way with getting out this month’s vote in the mid-term election. What a relief that’s over! Now we can concentrate on collecting our volunteer hours; rounding up eyeglasses, hearing aids, books-on-tape, and other useful items; and putting a bag together for Sacred Heart Community Service. A year-round need exists for all these items (except the election!) As Thanksgiving season draws near, we in our community can certainly appreciate how fortunate we are personally and that so many organizations, including our chapter, exist to help others.
