The Order was originally named the American Officers of the Great War, later changed to the Military Order of the World War, and still later to the Military Order of the World Wars. It was incorporated by an act of Congress on 27 January 1919. As a patriotic, non-partisan organization of federally commissioned or warrant officers who are retired, former or still on active duty in the armed forces of the United States of America, the United States Coast Guard, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) or the United States Public Health Service (USPHS). The Order is a unique organization, which seeks no benefit or advantage for itself or its members. It was established to promote the welfare of our Nation as a whole. As such the members, as Companions, unite in a strong program for patriotic education, national security and good citizenship. Its members are motivated by the MOWW Motto, "It is nobler to serve than to be served.”  The SCC Chapter meets monthly (except July & August) on the third Thursday at the Plaza Club, Freedom Fairways Golf Course, 3932 Upper Creek Drive, SCC, FL 33573.

WED. MAR 13 - WrapAround PLANNING FOR SENIORS WITH MULTIPLE NEEDS
10:30 - 11:30 a.m. at SCC United Methodist Church. This aging process at some point has us all needing help.  As the needs or issues increase we (as the family, friends, neighbors or the individual) may feel overwhelmed and unsure how to move forward.  WrapAround is an evidenced based process that was created back in the 80’s for children with multiple health issues.  The WrapAround process looks at the broad needs  as identified by the family/individual and helps them create a comprehensive plan to address concerns they and others have.  The process is fluid and changed as needs increase or decrease.  The plan is ultimately the individual/family plan with supports that may be formal or informal. This WrapAround Process is now being used to address the growing needs of seniors in Canada, England and a few states in the US. I am suggesting that we in the South Shore of Florida begin to look at this process to help our Seniors, their families (near and far) and our community as a whole to address these growing issues in a holistic and respectful way. If you are in need of help or a family member or a provider on any level please consider attending.  We need your input. Karen Fredricks, MSW, Retired and moved to Sun City Center in 2011 and has been involved with the SouthShore Coalition on Mental Health and Aging as well as NAMI Hillsborough. Former director of Family Ties of Westchester, New York where she with staff (often hired and trained from the community) opened Family Ties Family Resource Centers that were seen as an extension of the community or the communities living room where WrapAround meetings (called Network meetings) were held as well as many other community related Programing.
