Wishing you a blessed day full of peace and happiness (and lots of great turkey)!
The holiday season is upon us which means many of us will be in the giving mood. While it is time to give, it’s also a time to be cautious as scammers will be out in full force!
AARP is here to help connect you to the resources and information that will help you make the correct spending decisions and how to identify fraud. Watch their free webinar on December 3, 2020 at 7:00 p.m.
The webinar will include Online Shopping Scams, Charity Scams, Delivery Scams and Gift Card Scams. They will also answer questions such as What are the most common holiday scams? How can I protect myself and my loved ones from scams? What should I do if I’ve been targeted by a scam?

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of the trunk participants and volunteers who helped make our 2020 Drive-Thru Trunk or Treat a success!! We were able to avoid the wet weather and the little bit of wind didn’t deter the 17 vehicles that entered to win some really great prizes!
We had 247 vehicles that attended the event and voted for their favorite trunks in three different categories. Voting cards were handed in at the end of the drive-thru trunk displays and approximately 800 bags of candy were handed out.
THANK YOU to the Roscommon Area Public Schools for their support and allowing us to host the event on their campus. THANK YOU to all of the citizens and businesses that donated candy.
THANK YOU to the following groups for volunteering to help with the event:

We are hoping that next year we can go back to our normal process for this event, but it still turned out well as we had to follow guidelines for this type of large event and still remain COVID conscious.
This clinic is open to the public so if you have not gotten your flu vaccine yet, now is the time! It is very important, especially this year when COVID-19 is still prevalent to get a flu shot.
