New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)

New Year’s Eve Millbrook (Aired on December 17 and 18, 2016)
Rotarian
Joyce Heaton
(Millbrook Rotary), who has chaired the annual
event New Year’s Eve Millbrook for 13 years, describes the family-
friendly way that the Millbrook community and visitors celebrate the
last day of each year—with music, puppets, circus and magic acts, and
other entertainments. Many local foundations, businesses, and
individuals fund the free event, but it is run almost entirely by
volunteers from Millbrook Rotary. Each year patrons can donate a
small sum to obtain a lighted button that incorporates a design by a
local student. The RadioRotary interview also describes some of the
many other activities of Millbrook Rotary, which range from annual
publication of a business directory for Millbrook and the surrounding
communities through provision of local school children with school
supplies their families might be able to afford to donations of free
dictionaries and other books to local schools. The club also helps fund
local organizations and international projects.

Senator Sue Serino: Senior Scams (Aired on November 12 & 13, 2016)

New York State Senator Sue Serino, chair of the Aging Committee, spoke to RadioRotary about telephone and Internet scams aimed at seniors, and how to avoid them. One of the most common recently in her district has been a phone call pretending to be from the IRS. The caller says that the person receiving the call is delinquent on back taxes and must pay immediately or will be sent to jail. Such a call is always a scam—the IRS does not phone delinquent payers. Another common phone scam aimed at the elderly is for the caller to pretend to be a grandchild in trouble. One clue is that the caller asks for money to be sent as a prepaid card or wired to an address that can be a drop-off. Many more scams, and how to avoid them, are discussed.
