Today’s Program: 

Frank Lee was introduced by Jack so he could bring us up to speed on the aspects of Medicare and how we can use it to get more for our health care dolloars, 

Frank asked that I put his contact information in the bulletin – here it is:

Frank Lee – Medicare Solutions.  If you have a question drop an email to Frank at the following address:  frankleeinsurance@gmail.com and ask your question.  Frank is very knowledgable in guiding people on their use of medicare.  He will get you and answer.   He handed out a comprehensive guide on Medicare and walked us through the info so we could better understand how it work.  This was a greatly informative presentation.  Frank said he wanted everyone to take advantage of having him as a resource for what he does for his clients.  Be sure and take advantage of his expertise for anything in this matter

Raffle Winners

Gary had his ticket pulled and won the bottle of wine.  Gary also had his ticket pulled for the marble game and selected a blue marble and won $2.  Next week the pot will be $80.


Thought for the week

If you think things are expensive now, wait until the prices go to zero and there is nothing you can buy.  Communism does not work and neither does giving money to everyone.  I don’t care what Bernie Sanders says.
