We scored a big grocery bag full of eyeglasses last month! You were spared a fashion show of times past as they left the meeting early for their appointment with the Lions Club. Perhaps your church or other organization has these kicking around with no home. We can get them on their way to people who really need them easily — just bring them to our chapter meeting.
It’s not too early to get ready for Sacred Heart’s Pack-a -Back program. If you see a good buy on general school supplies or back packs as you shop, please consider shopping also for neighboring children very less fortunate than our own. Contributions are very much appreciated, especially at our next three meetings.

“What’s your father’s occupation?” asked the school secretary on the first day of the new academic year. “He’s a magician, ma’am” said Little Johnny.
“How interesting. What’s his favorite trick?”
“He saws people in half.”
“Wow! Now, next question. Any brothers or sisters?”
“One half brother and two half sisters.”
Why We Love Children
NUDITY – I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, ‘Mom, that lady isn’t wearing a seat belt!’
OPINIONS – On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his teacher a note from his mother. The note read, ‘The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents ..’
KETCHUP – A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone.. It was the minister calling, ‘Mommy can’t come to the phone to talk to you right now, She’s hitting the bottle.’
MORE NUDITY—A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women’s locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, ‘What’s the matter, haven’t you ever seen a little boy before?’
POLICE # 1—While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, ‘Are you a cop? Yes,’ I answered and continued writing the report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the police. Is that right?’ ‘Yes, that’s right,’ I told her. ‘Well, then,’ she said as she extended her foot toward me, ‘would you please tie my shoe?’
SCHOOL – A little girl had just finished her first week of school. ‘I’m just wasting my time,’ she said to her mother. ‘I can’t read, I can’t write, and they won’t let me talk!’

What Your Legal Documents Do and Don’t Do For You Dedra Jize
Finally, and a bit late…but here it is…Enclosed are the responses to our Membership Survey. The Board wants to wholeheartedly thank those who submitted their comments and to let you know that they are truly appreciated
There are various documents that make up an Estate Plan. These documents not only direct your wishes at death but can be very important to help you while alive and may even help preserve your estate assets . What are these documents? There are various types of documents such as a Durable Power of Attorney, Health Care Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, Living Trust and a POLST. They each have a different function to help your loved one help you should you lack physical or mental capacity to make your own decisions.
Dedra Jize holds a Bachelor of Science in Occupational Therapy from San Jose State University and is a Certified Senior Advisor and Geriatric Care Manager at the Law Offices of Roy W. Litherland. She helps families as they may be struggling with the care or plan for a loved one. This involves assessing (physical, psychological and social health), advocating (assures that the senior’s wishes and voice is being heard) and assisting (providing resources and finding payment options such as Medi-Cal) seniors and their family members. Combining Geriatric Care Management (GCM) with an Elder Law Attorney provides a unique approach that is comprehensive beyond the standard services offered by GCM’s.
