June 2014


Say “Welcome” to Kat McGhee, our newest member. 


We began our May meeting with Honi giving us a history of the Lawrence Barn.  She described how the “barn” came to be to include its finding, its dismantling, its storage, its fund raising and ultimately, its “barn raising” to what we have now.  This was a most interesting and historical presentation given by Honi who was a key member in getting the Lawrence Barn up and running.


Next we had a presentation by AARP representatives on Medicare Fraud.  Because the Medicare program is so large, the possibility of fraud seems to be everywhere.  The representative stressed the importance of all of us (most of us seniors) needinh to really, really review our Medicare statements whenever we have medical appointments.  Seniors also need to be aware of ID theft that can go along with Medicare Fraud.  Nothing is easy.


The following week we had a sing along with Kat and Janet.  We sang a whole bunch of oldies and goodies and had a “singing” good time.


The next week was a pass.


The last week was our business meeting AND a concert by the HBHS senior choir led by Julie Carbone.  The choir preformed selections ranging from modern to spiritual to oldies.  They can come back every week! 


After the concert, we had our business meeting. The minutes of the last meeting were read by Bob Fiero and accepted. The Treasurer’s report was read by Nancy Bell and accepted.


New business: All were reminded that we have plans for our summer picnic (19 June with entertainment) and our Christmas lunch.  Also, there will be NO Meals-On-Wheels during June, July and August.  But, during the first week of those months, we will be having pizza.   And some weeks, we will be dining out at local restaurants.  The remaining weeks you are to bring your own lunch.
