Whitley County AARP holds meeting

Cindy Barnett, the guest speaker, spoke to the group on technology.  She stated that any new technology is out- dated as soon as it is released.  She spoke on Cell phones, I-pods, and computers. Cell phones are for communication: oral and texting. I-pods are for downloading music.  Computers are for instant messaging and Internet. With computers we have Face Book, My Space, Skype, Twittering, You Tube and Blogging. There are many computer classes available at the extension office and computers are available for the public to use.

Henrietta Lefkowicz reminded everyone to get their flu shots. There is an over-the- counter ointment you can get called Albolene to use for dry skin patches. Also you are not loosing it if you can’t remember “What am I doing here?”  You just have too many things on your mind. Just keep telling yourself what you are going after over and over, so you won’t forget.

The next meeting will be December 1. It will be a catered luncheon by Jill Daniels. If you have not reserved your lunch, you can do so by contacting Jeanette Zumbrun at 244-3435.  The price is $8.50.
