First of all, I would like to take this opportunity to thank two people who stepped up to take the positions of Vice-President and Treasurer. I have stressed over the last few months the importance of people leaving their comfort zone and it is gratifying to know that there are folks out there in our membership who are willing to take on a new responsibility. So, a heartfelt ‘thank you’ to Paul Levine, our new Vice-President, and Helen Soukoulis, our new Treasurer.
Best of luck to our last Treasurer, David More, as he and his family begin a new life in the state of Washington; we will miss his dedication and sense of humor. Some of you may not know that David served as Treasurer back in 2011 or 2012 as well.
We have a treat (I think!) in store at the general meeting on Aug. 20; the Boomerang Barbershop Quartet, who entertained us last August, will perform once again. There were many favorable remarks about their performance last year, and it makes sense to have them return.
As I mentioned at the July meeting, the yearly AARP Day of Service will take place on Wednesday Sept.11; volunteer activities for our chapter or members are available at the AARP-sponsored site: www.createthegood.org. I was privy to this information from the quarterly state telephone call last week. They also shared some information on Fraud Prevention. For more information, go to aarp.org/fraudwatchnetwork.org.
