The Sep 1 2022 meeting also reviewed the status of the Memorial Wall project, the SAVES program, as well as several status briefings were given regarding aspects of the upcoming annual GLVFA golf event (open slots for golfing groups, carts, and volunteers needed, and status of the auction/raffle and 50-50).
On Thursday, June 2nd, 2022, the membership held its monthly meeting at the GlenLakes clubhouse. Representatives of Florida Tax Advisors, a regular sponsor of the GLVFA annual golf event, reviewed the latest in options for investment vehicles with a focus on how members can reduce their tax liability when having to withdraw funds from their annual 401K required minimum distributions (RMD) through leveraging withdrawal amounts for charitable donations (all or part of the annual withdrawal required). The information discussed was enlightening and potentially helpful for some members to reduce their overall annual tax burden. For more specific details, it is advised to contact the Florida Tax Advisors directly and request further information on this particular IRS feature for RMD withdrawals. Their contact phone number is: (352) 398-4919
As a second presenter, from the Hernando County Sheriff's Department, Pam Johnson informed us about their department's well-care line. The department established a "CARE LINE" program for the security and well-being of those people living alone who would like daily contact with someone who cares.
Ms. Johnson explained how this service has helped people in the community and has saved actual lives (she detailed a recent incident). She highlighted the fact that anyone can receive a time-scheduled phone call from the department. to ensure one is doing well. No answer calls will initiate a deputy dispatch to one's residence.
For further information regarding this program, especially if you know of someone who would greatly benefit from it, please refer to the Hernando County Sheriff's website or download their brochure using the button below.
This meeting was very informative as several guest presentations offered attending members great information on elder law from the law offices of Kara Evans Elder Law (board-certified elder law attorney) and also treated with e-Photonic therapy from Neurolumen using their VA-approved pain treatment device that delivers pain relief and healing energy in the form of laser, LED, and electro-stimulation. The folks at Neurolumen stayed long after the conclusion of the meeting to allow all members who wanted to try the therapy get an opportunity to try the therapy.
As you can see, we had a very busy and enjoyable meeting.
