         Secretary:            LAST Week: Two excellent programs had been arranged by Mary Malin. We took
      Rebecca Simpson         one of them and very much enjoyed the presentation on "Long Term Care Insurance" by
                              Don Harris and Charles Kelly of Genworth Financial. Our visitors came from Weston and
                              New Canaan. They were real experts and answered all our questions. For example: "At
      David Schumacher        what age should I take our Long Term Care Insurance?" The answer, “As soon as you can
     Asst. Andy DelGrego      afford it." Generally speaking, the earlier one starts the less the cost, in the end.

        Sgt. At Arms:
                              They left with us a treatise, copy to each of us. "10 Truths about Long Term Care
        Farshid Hakim         Insurance." Now we have the facts. They also gave President Jim. we assume for reading
