HAUNTED HAY RACK RIDE: The GBCHAA is seeking ideas and volunteers
for our upcoming Haunted Hay Rack Ride. Contact Lois Wortman @
IRS SCAM: is one of the scams now prevalent in the area. Please
remember to never give out any important information or numbers over
the phone, ever. Ask for a call-back number and seek advice from a
trusted individual before answering any questions. If the caller is
threatening or pushy in any way, just hang-up. Hanging up is not bad
manners; it is protecting yourself against scams.
LEISURE CENTER: The Leisure Center is reaching out to the
community to ask for help in delivering meals and driving the bus.
One day a week (excluding Saturday and Sunday) is all you would be
asked to do. If you feel like you cannot commit to one day a week
then sign up as a reserve driver or deliverer. If you should need to
be off, someone will fill in. This is a wonderful service for our
community and certainly helps people who do not feel like fixing a
meal or just can’t because of health reasons. The saying "many hands
make light work" certainly applies to this situation. Drivers need a
valid driver’s license. Please call 886-3466 if you are interested.
NUTS: The Gyp Hills Pilot Club has Pecan Halves, Pecan Pieces,
