Ladies Book Club

  • For February, we'll be reading The Pecan Man by Cassie Dandridge Selleck. Happy reading....
  • Read about and see some pictures that were taken at January's discussion of Before We Were Yours by Lisa Wingate.
  • See Books We'll Be Reading in 2019 to get a head start on your reading. One change has been made. Although the book selected for September, The President is Missing, is a thrilling page turner, it was not believed to be a good book for discussion, so it has been replaced with Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon and Shana Knizhnik.

Lynnhaven Ladies

  • See what else is planned for 2019. It has been updated with more events. Have any suggestions for a program or trip?

  • The Helwigs have a 2-bedroom condo rental across from Seaworld available for 4 nights in February.

  • Listen to what a Social Security scam sounds like. The FTC is closed due to the government shutdown, but this information was posted before the shutdown so you can still read about it and listen to the scam recording.

  • Phishing is when someone uses fake emails or texts to get you to share valuable personal information like account numbers, Social Security numbers, or your login IDs and passwords. Scammers use your information to steal your money, identity, or both. They also use phishing emails to get access to your computer or network. If you click on a link, they can install ransomware or other programs that can lock you out of your data. The FTC warns of a Netflix phishing scam: Don't take the bait!

  • New Vision for Independence is the sole provider of support services for people with low vision or blindness in Lake & Sumter Counties and here in The Villages, promoting their independence, acceptance, and self-confidence. Chantel Buck, President & CEO of the organization, has a New Year's message and asks us to donate... to make an investment in helping our visually-impaired neighbors learn to live independently, volunteer or join a committee, and plan on attending its annual fundraiser, Dining in the Dark.

  • The Lions Club of Mount Dora invites you to their January meeting. The speaker will be Dr. Jack Schorr who has donated his services to help people in need with vision problems, talking about his recent travels to remote areas of Haiti. There is also a report and pictures from the 58th annual Christmas Parade.
