Properly Dispose Documents
By: Jamie Carter                                                                               Club Car Show

    Proper disposal of
important financial and
personal information is not
what it once was. In years
past people would cut up
or just throw away such
things in their trash. When
burning was allowed many
would burn their old docu-
ments. Not so anymore.
With the increase in iden-
tity theft and fraud over the
last decade it has become
increasingly important to
dispose of such documents.      vice was provided Saturday     different days and times.
