Avoiding scams will be the topic of a retirees' seminar on Tuesday, Nov. 16 at 10:30am in the Student Center Mezzanine Lounge.
Dan Dermody, an investigator from the Massachusetts Secretary of State's Office, will be the speaker.
He will present a videotape and describe sophisticated approaches used to relieve people of their assets, including a number of Y2K bank and credit-card scams now in operation around the state. The presentation will be followed by a sandwich lunch.
Because many retirees have expressed an interest in using the facilities of the Hobby Shop and the Student Art Association, both will be open for tours in the early afternoon. Ken Stone (Hobby Shop) and Ed McCluney (SAA) will lead tours which will include examples of work in progress in the shop and studios. Both facilities welcome participation by retirees.
Members of the community interested in attending should call the Retirees Office at x3-7910 to sign up. The cost for the lunch is $4.
