BINGO

Changes are happening at Monday Bingo and we want to thank Louise Tavani for her chairmanship over the 55+ Club’s Bingo for many years. Louise has been a part of bingo since the club began in 2002 and has continued her involvement helping make bingo a popular activity for our club members. We welcome Anna Fake who has stepped up as Bingo Chairperson, we know she will do a great job. Thank you to the entire bingo team for all your assistance and thank you to those ladies who stayed on to continue to assist Anna. Do you want to learn more about Monday Bingo? Perhaps assist or just enjoy playing? Contact Anna at 321/961-5771 or afake1105@gmail.com

2019 DUES

Members who’s dues were not paid by the end of February were removed from our membership list and will have not received this newsletter. However, once dues have been paid we will happily renew your  membership. If you know someone who has not paid their 2019 dues, please encourage them to do so right away. Payments can be made at the DRS Community Center, Bingo or given to any committee member. ALL members are being asked to fill out a new membership card. WHY? We are collecting emergency contact names and phone numbers. If possible, please provide a name and number of a person NOT living in your home. First, unfortunately, we had no one to contact when a couple of our  members recently had falls. Secondly, after 17 years the membership cards have gotten rather messy! Thirdly, this is a good way to update all
of your information.

AVOID SCAMS

What should you do if someone calls and asks for your information, for money, or threatens to cancel your health benefits if you don’t share your personal information? Hang up! It’s a scam. Scam artists may try to steal your personal information by calling you and asking for your current Medicare Number to get your new Medicare card.

Medicare will never call uninvited and ask you to give personal  information or money to get your new Medicare Number or card. Go to MyMedicare.gov to learn what to do if you get a suspicious call like this.

SNAIL MAIL VS. EMAIL

The 55+ Club has been working on reducing the cost of postage incurred with the mailing of the club newsletter. Many members have signed up to receive their newsletter via email rather than postal mail. If you have  mail access, we are asking you to sign up NOW. At some point, maybe soon, it may occur that the cost of postage becomes prohibitive and the choice will be rather than discontinue the newsletter, those who have email will only receive it electronically. Please contact Louise S. at 321/202-7337 or louinthesun@cfl.rr.com to sign up for this service.

QUOTES AND QUIPS

We would like to add quotes to the club newsletter if space permits and I’m asking members to send me their favorite quotes or words that have meaning to you. Thank you! 321/202-7337 or louinthesun@cfl.rr.com
