New Website Updates (this week):

  • The annual Lynnhaven Neighborhood Garage Sale will be early November, so start going through your stuff and cleaning out things you no longer want or use.
     
  • Joan Hartung's Estate Sale has been postponed until October 4th & 5th... NOT this week.

  • With our new Social Security cards being issued, Medicare warns us to watch out for scams. Scam artists may try to get personal information (like your current Medicare Number) by contacting you about your new card. The FTC also warns that they've received reports about official-sounding scammers saying your Social Security number has been suspended. It's a scam!

Ladies Book Club

Lynnhaven Ladies

  • For October, the awesome Clark Barrios will be singing all our favorite songs. We wrote them down at September's luncheon social and Kathy will be passing them along to him so he can customize his show just for us. We recommend that you arrive early to be assured a seat since more of our seasonal residents will be back.
     
  • The annual Fall bus trip on Tuesday, November 13th, will be to the International Plaza & Bay Street mall or Historic Ybor City (pick which you want and write it on your check). If you didn't sign up at September's luncheon social, you can drop off your check and contact information at Kathy Warner's at 2425 Wilson Way. She has a box on her front porch if she's not home.
     
  • Send your Lynnhaven Ladies dues for 2018 to Marion Getzes. Send your check made out to Lynnhaven Ladies to her and include your name (as you want it to appear on your name badge), address, home phone #, cell phone #, email address, home state, full or part-time resident; and if you were a previous member, but not this current year, the last year that you were a member.

  • Florida's Consumer eNewsletter for September is available. Topics include the resources available consumers, product packaging and standards, and signs of a student loan scam, as well as Florida's A - Z Resource Guide, and food and consumer recalls.
     
  • Experience a sampling of Tavares’s finest beers — without your eyes! This fundraising event benefits New Vision for Independence, our local blind-services agency. For the Flights for Sight Blind Beer Tasting fundraiser, you’ll wear a blindfold and taste a flight of beers from Bru Tap House Wednesday, October 10th.
     
  • The AARP Fraud Watch Network lets us know about a new law that will go into effect Friday, September 21st, so you will be able to freeze and unfreeze your credit reports for free — no Equifax, Experian or Transunion fees. Freezing your credit reports deters scammers from opening accounts in your name in the future, but it doesn’t stop thieves from getting into your current financial accounts.
     
  • The Lions Club of Mt. Dora invites you to their September meeting.
     
  • Jessica Ramirez has volunteered with Addiction Resource and shared a link to the dangers of addiction among the elderly. She also passed along an article about tobacco use among seniors that she thought might be useful.

  • The FTC warns again on how to avoid hurricane relief charity fraud. The news is been overflowing with natural disasters and weather emergencies, and scammers are quick to exploit these tragedies, appealing to our generosity. The FTC urges us to be cautious of potential charity scams and provides tips and tools so we can donate wisely so our donation will go to a reputable organization that will use the money as promised.
     
  • All charity scams are deplorable, but those pretending to raise funds for our nation’s veterans are particularly shameful. The AARP Fraud Watch Network lets us know how these charities sucker you in and tips should you be contacted.
