FLORIDA AMONG FIRST STATES FOR VACCINE? HEADLINES FROM HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY
Health Care: Florida to be part of Covid-19 vaccine pilot
By Christine Sexton – The News Service of Florida 
Florida, which has endured a surge of coronavirus infections this summer, will participate in a Covid-19 vaccine pilot program with the federal government. State Surgeon General Scott Rivkees said Tuesday, during a conference call with hospital officials, that Florida has been invited to be part of a federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccine pilot group. Rivkees said Florida was one of four states chosen to participate, along with the city of Philadelphia. Rivkees said details for the pilot program “will be coming as vaccines become available,” but he did not explain further. The Florida Department of Health did not immediately respond to requests by The News Service of Florida for additional information. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also did not immediately reply to requests for information about the pilot program.  As Covid-19, the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus, spreads across the nation and globally, scientists around the world have raced to develop vaccines to slow the spread. Russian President Vladimir Putin this week announced the approval of a vaccine. President Donald Trump on May 15 announced Operation Warp Speed, which aims to deliver 300 million doses of a safe, effective vaccine for Covid-19 by January 2021. The initiative is targeting investments to the manufacturing and distribution of Covid-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics. The pilot program is one of the first glimpses into the Trump administration’s distribution plans. As reported Monday by Congressional Quarterly Roll Call, federal officials plan to conduct visits to the four states and develop models based on what they learn.  Public health experts believe at least 70 percent of the population must be vaccinated to achieve herd immunity, with officials fearing that demand will outpace supply.  The National Governors Association is recommending that state leaders begin to prepare. The association’s best practices committee on Aug. 3 issued a memorandum encouraging governors to get ready for distribution and included several policy recommendations to consider. “Although a vaccine is not yet available, lessons learned from the acquisition and distribution of Covid-19 diagnostics and therapeutics suggest that governors may want to begin addressing the challenges of mass distribution before its arrival,” the National Governors Association memo said. “Immunizing the U.S. population against Covid-19 will likely require the single largest vaccination campaign ever undertaken and governors will play a key role in bringing together leaders from their state public health, immunization, and emergency management systems to design and execute the operation.” 
In addition to Florida, Rivkees identified Minnesota, California and South Dakota as the other states participating in the pilot program. But it appears Rivkees misspoke when he said South Dakota. North Dakota is participating in the pilot.  The North Dakota Department of Health issued a statement Monday saying it was chosen, in part, because the federal government wanted to explore vaccination distribution strategies to American Indian populations.  Minnesota, meanwhile, announced it was participating in the vaccine pilot in a media call this month. Kris Ehresmann, an infectious-diseases official for the Minnesota Department of Health, described the participating states as “leaders for the country.”  California health department officials didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

NEW COVID CARE SITE OPEN
Hillsborough County Creates New COVID-19 Care Site with BayCare. To ensure hospital beds remain available to serve the community during the pandemic, Hillsborough County has created a new alternative care site for patients who are recovering from a COVID-19 hospital stay. The County is partnering with BayCare to launch the innovative project. Hillsborough County Emergency Management refitted a boutique hotel to serve as an alternate care site for COVID-19 patients who are eligible for discharge from a hospital but need support as they recover and may not be able to return home immediately. This unique service provides patients with 24/7 post-acute care and support from doctors and nurses for a few days before going home. Hillsborough County refitted The West Wing Hotel, 2501 East Fowler Avenue in Tampa, to accommodate the specific needs of a medical facility. The additions include a new generator, a large canopy to provide additional shelter for patients arriving at the facility, and convenience items in the patients’ rooms. Patients who meet the medical criteria will be discharged from the hospital and checked into the new COVID-19 care site for additional care. During their stay, each patient will be quarantined, closely monitored, and will receive supportive care for at least three days, including meals, ongoing vital checks, medications, and oxygen. This new COVID-19 care site is part of a continuous effort by Hillsborough County and BayCare to provide effective and high-quality care to patients and the community amid the challenges posed by the pandemic. The hotel will be professionally cleaned and refitted to accommodate hotel guests once the need has passed. For more information on COVID-19, and any other potential emergency in the county, visit HCFLGov.net/StaySafe and sign up for the HCFL Alert system. Additionally, you can follow Hillsborough County on social media at Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor for updates. For general County information, call (813) 272-5900, the County’s main information line.
 
FLORIDA SURGEON GERNERAL NOTICE:
Avoid the “3 Cs” Closed Spaces, Crowded Places & Close-Contact Settings & wear a mask. More - FloridaHealth.gov 


IMPORTANT - HOW TO PROTCT YOURSELF & OTHERS (Info from CDC) now how it spreads
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).
The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.
The virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person.
Between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet).
Through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks.
These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.
Some recent studies have suggested that COVID-19 may be spread by people who are not showing symptoms.
EVERYONE SHOULD
Wash your hands often
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
AVOID CLOSE CONTACT
Avoid close contact with people who are sick, even inside your home. If possible, maintain 6 feet between the person who is sick and other household members.
Put distance between yourself and other people outside of your home.
Remember that some people without symptoms may be able to spread virus.
Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arms’ length) from other people.
Do not gather in groups.
Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gatherings.
Keeping distance from others is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.
COVER YOUR MOUTH AND NOSE WITH A CLOTH FACE COVER WHEN AROUND OTHERS
You could spread COVID-19 to others even if you do not feel sick.
Everyone should wear a cloth face cover when they have to go out in public, for example to the grocery store or to pick up other necessities.
Cloth face coverings should not be placed on young children under age 2, anyone who has trouble breathing, or is unconscious, incapacitated or otherwise unable to remove the mask without assistance.
The cloth face cover is meant to protect other people in case you are infected.
Do NOT use a facemask meant for a healthcare worker.
Continue to keep about 6 feet between yourself and others. The cloth face cover is not a substitute for social distancing.
COVER COUGHS AND SNEEZES
If you are in a private setting and do not have on your cloth face covering, remember to always cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
Throw used tissues in the trash.
Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
CLEAN AND DISINFECT
Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them. Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
Then, use a household disinfectant. Most common EPA-registered household disinfectantsexternal icon will work.
MONITOR YOUR HEALTH
Be alert for symptoms. Watch for fever, cough, shortness of breath, or other symptoms of COVID-19.
Especially important if you are running essential errands, going into the office or workplace, and in settings where it may be difficult to keep a physical distance of 6 feet.
Take your temperature if symptoms develop.
Don’t take your temperature within 30 minutes of exercising or after taking medications that could lower your temperature, like acetaminophen.
Follow CDC guidance if symptoms develop.

Kim recently was a member of the SCCCA Long-Range Planning Committee.  She and her husband are full-time residents of Sun City Center and have lived here since 2011. 
We did receive eight (8) applications to fill the interim Board vacancy.  As expected, those members stepping forward were well credentialed.  Thanks to all of them for their interest in our community. We urge them to consider submitting an application to run for one of three positions that will be open for the three-year term beginning January 6, 2021.


GENERAL UPDATES


It's Here!   It's Here!!
The Board of Directors along with the Long-Range Planning Committee has kicked off the process to Design/Build our new 20,000 square foot building and Resort style pool. We have contracted with Jonathan Moore from Invision Advisors to coordinate the project for the new building and Resort style pool. 
With this in mind we have scheduled the following calendar to interact with you in beginning our process.
On August 31, 2020 we will have a Zoom Board of Directors workshop and will be sharing with the community where the building and pool will be located, instructions to follow. 
On October 28th at the Membership Meeting we will have an architecture rendition of our plan for your viewing.

ENTERTAINMENT SERIES CANCELLATION NOTICE 
In an abundance of caution, the SCCCA 2020-2021 Entertainment Series is cancelled.  To ensure the health and safety of our members, both the Friday night dance series and the Sunday show series will not occur.   


FUTURE CA ROOM USE UNDER COVID:
The CA Board and staff have been monitoring COVID-19 activity as reported daily by health professionals at the CDC, NIH, Florida and county health departments; we are concerned with the observed "relaxing of safety practices" that have been in place during the COVID-19 quarantine period.  Masking and social distancing, while still encouraged is being used less frequently.  Talk of a "second wave of illness", as an increase in case numbers is being seen, is on the minds of health professionals. We have decided that our community will move much more cautiously than the rest of surrounding society for the remainder of 2020 and possibly into 2021; we will NOT open the facilities for larger-group gatherings, such as seminars, dances, member-room-rentals for special events, entertainment and club gatherings at which meals are provided, catered or otherwise, and that may be attended by non-members.  We are also concerned with the return of our snowbirds and what real risks of infection that may bring. Please remember that our 11,400 +/- members are at the highest risk of developing symptoms and experiencing the extreme consequences of COVID-19 illness; our health and safety are the highest priority.  Our obligation is to prevent a health disaster.  We will continue to monitor all professional guidance daily and if indicated, we will revisit this decision and apprise you of any changes.

THE SUN CITY MEN'S CHORUS has announced an important concert schedule adjustment for the balance of 2020. Because of the current restrictions brought on by and fighting Covid-19, this year's Christmas performances have been cancelled. 
This Musically gifted group men have corporately decided to look forward to a robust early 2021 Spring Season.  The Men's Chorus is under the leadership of President Tom Hinkebein who announced the vote of the Chorus Board of Directors was unanimous, indicating after much consideration the regretful but important choice was best for the audience and chorus members.
The Chorus also announces with sadness and sends condolences to the family and friends of former conductor  Lynn Hirschfeld who passed away in June 2020.  Lynn was indeed a skillful and likeable showman to audiences for many years.
The current conductor of the Sun City Men's Chorus, Kevin Goodenow brings excellence to the podium with inspiration and musicianship.  Even though there will be no main Chorus Christmas Concert and other singing Holiday venues on the calendar for this year, the singers say that you can count on the Sun City Center Men's Chorus to be ready to sing as "Brothers in Song" when healing comes to our State and Nation.


RESOURCES FOOD:


IF YOU ARE NOT IN NEED OF FOOD BUT ARE ABLE TO CONTRIUTE TO OTHERS NOT SO FORTUNATE, PLEASE REACH OUT TO THESE ORGANIZATIONS:


FINDING FOOD FUNDS LOW? Here’s Where to Find Help
Food Assistance for Seniors – Hillsborough County residents age 60 and older can apply for food assistance through Hillsborough County Aging Services. There is no income requirement to participate in the federally-funded program. For more information on receiving meals and to apply, call (813) 272-5250.



SILVER PLATTER PROGRAM FOR SENIORS ENROLLED IN HOME-DELIVERED MEALS PROGRAM
Hillsborough County’s Department of Aging Services has partnered with local restaurants and food trucks to offer a food delivery program to the homes of seniors enrolled in its home-delivered meals program.  One to two nights a week, the County’s Silver Platter program provides restaurant-quality meals delivered to the homes of Aging Services’ clients.  Silver Platter was recently initiated with a focus on assisting Aging Services’ seniors who live alone and in areas that are scarcely populated with restaurants.  It provides additional nutrition to seniors who are sheltering in place to avoid potential exposure to COVID-19 coronavirus. The County’s staff dietician works with the chef at each restaurant and food truck to ensure the menu items that are provided to Aging Services’ clients meet the state’s dietary guidelines. This service also offers a safety check by a delivery driver who practices social distancing when delivering each meal. The County started with 160 clients who live in the Ruskin and Wimauma area, but has since expanded Silver Platter to reach more clients throughout the County. Along with serving hot dinners to seniors, Silver Platter is designed to employ local restaurants and food trucks that have struggled during the economic challenge the nation has faced as a result of the pandemic. The program was initiated and supported by state agencies, including the Florida Department of Elder Affairs, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, and the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. Aging Services uses funding from the Families First Act and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act to support Silver Platter.  Aging Services is working locally with Senior Connection Center (the region’s Area Agency on Aging), Tampa Bay Food Trucks, and several local restaurants to make Silver Platter a success in Hillsborough County.  Call Aging Services for info: (813) 272-5250


RESOURCES FOR PETS:


HAVING A PLAN FOR YOUR PET
Have a plan when rehoming your pet is necessary…
“He was my friend and my companion, and giving him up was very difficult for me”  
It is very difficult when life changes cause people to move into facilities that will not allow pets.  Feline Folks is sensitive to this.  We try to help but that is not the best option. The pet owner MUST plan for the unexpected.  As veterinary Dr. Jones says, have a plan, it will be a real source of comfort.  
Some options include: Consider adoption by friend or family, Talk to a veterinarian, Allow for a smooth transition by helping the pet get settled in the new home by building trust and becoming familiar with the new environment. 
Rehomed pets aren’t gone forever.  The new owner might be able to periodically visit the original owner with the pet. Talk to the facility where you will be moving.  Debbie Caneen of Sun Towers states that it is possible they will accept your pet. It is recommended that every pet owner have a plan.  Like a will, it is good to periodically revisit the plan.
Feline Folks is a 501©3, totally not for profit operating on donations and through the kindness of volunteers.  During these challenging times Feline Folks is still feeding, neutering, vaccinating and fostering many cats.  We operate from the kindness of your donation.  Please consider donating by sending a check to P.O. Box 6294, SCC, FL 33571-6294
Contact us at Info@FelineFolks.us  Feline Folks is a not-for-profit all volunteer job that feeds and cares for the community cats.  For information email info@felinefolks.us  -  You can also visit our Facebook site - "Feline Folks of Sun City Center"


VETERINARY SERVICES DURING CORONAVIRUS THREAT:
As the reduction in community services starts to affect our daily lives, GMFC (Global Military Family Coalition, Inc.) thought it would be helpful to provide you information and resources on health-related topics that might be concerning you or your families. Families come in all shapes and sizes and many of you have furry, feathered, or scaled members that you consider parts of your family. 
1. Your pet is likely enjoying all the additional time you’re spending at home! Are you worried about how COVID-19 may affect them? The CDC has no evidence that your pets can carry or spread the disease but check out these CDC pages that should answer all your questions:
a. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prepare/animals.html or https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/faq.html#COVID19animals
2. Even if you’re in in a “stay at home” status, veterinary services are still available across the country. Most vet clinics are asking clients to stay in their vehicles while their animals are examined or treated, and many request that you postpone elective procedures such as spays, neuters, and dental cleanings to conserve PPE (gowns, masks, gloves) for the human hospitals. Call your veterinarian if your animal is sick, needs emergency assistance, prescription refills, or your animal is due for vaccines.
a. DoD Veterinary Treatment Facilities are open but are prioritizing services to ensure the health of military working dogs to maintain readiness. Care to privately owned animals will be prioritized based on availability and need. It is recommended that you call first.
3. Lastly, if you’re lonely, this is a great time to adopt or foster a pet. Many animal shelters are full and less traffic means more vulnerable animals so ask your local shelter if you’re interested in temporary foster or adoption. Please only do so if you can continue to care for your new addition once your life returns to normal.

If there are topics you would GMFC like us to present, or if you have any feedback at all, please feel free to post them on our Facebook page or send them to info@globalmilitaryfamilycoalition.ngo

WEST COAST FLORIDA MENTAL WELLNESS COALITION
Like the Crisis Center, a new alliance of local agencies that helps people with mental health issues and addictions is seeing an uptick in inquiries during the COVID-19 pandemic. The nonprofit West Central Florida Mental Wellness Coalition is comprised of almost 30 hospitals, government and law enforcement agencies, health-care groups, schools, businesses, and others with interests in mental health in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco, and Polk counties. It formed in 2019 so members with mental health expertise in specific areas could get a collective, big-picture view.  The Coalition is braced for a surge of inquiries, especially as people assess their circumstances as a result of the coronavirus. “Coming out the other side will be the big challenge,” says Carrie Zeisse, the Coalition’s president and CEO.  Email the Coalition at info@wcf-mwc.org.


SAFETY AND SCAMS TO BE AWARE OF:


REMINDER, DUE TO AN INCREASED NUMBER OF THEFTS, SCC residents are asked to keep their garage doors secured, to lock their car and house doors and make sure personal items are out of sight.


AVOIDING CORONAVIRUS SCAMS FROM THE BETTER BUSINESS BUREAU:
https://www.bbb.org/council/coronavirus/


SCAMS AGAINST VETERANS - There have been reports of individuals fraudulently posing as VA employees and who are contacting patients in an attempt to collect medical supplies and equipment, particularly items used for personal protection like rubber gloves and masks.  
VA would NEVER contact patients and ask them to return supplies and equipment after issuance of such items. If you or a Veteran you know are being targeted by this type of fraudulent activity, please contact the VA Office of the Inspector General.  You can submit a complaint 24/7 by visiting www.va.gov/oig/hotline. You can also report concerns via telephone by calling 1-800-488-8244, on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m


HCSO Community Resource Officer Deputy Jeff Merry who continues to be watching over the safety of our Sun City Center residents.  He has asked that the following scams be communicated with your staff, clients & patients:
1. Phone calls about the stimulus checks in an attempt to get the victim's bank account information.  It begins by saying they are the Treasury and they need to direct deposit the money.  
2. There are people going door to door claiming to be with Homeland Security and offering at-home testing.  This is a Medicare scam and the cons charge Medicare thousands of dollars for non existing Medicare services.

VETERANS INFO AND RESOURCES:


TRANSPORTATION FOR VETERANS
Veterans Ride Free to Appointments During COVID-19
The Florida Veterans Foundation today announced its partnership with Uber to create the ‘Veterans Ride Program’ for Florida Veterans who may have limited transportation options when trying to keep essential medical appointments during coronavirus. The program will be overseen by the Foundation who has partnered with The VA Sunshine Healthcare Network (VISN 8) which includes all VA facilities around the state of Florida.  “This is a profound gesture on the part of Uber to recognize the importance of helping transportation disadvantaged Veterans getting to and from their appointments especially during these difficult times,” said Lew Wilson, President, Florida Veterans Foundation.  Visit www.HelpFLVets.org for a map of participating Florida VA facilities only. Veterans interested in participating in the program can contact their local VA facility in Florida to receive an Uber code.  Each trip is limited to a $25 value and the supply of free rides is limited to the first one thousand trips. The free ride codes will be issued to Veterans on a case by case basis by each local VA facility after a brief evaluation.  For Veterans who do not have an Uber app, they may dial 1-833-USE-UBER, where the rider will be paired with a live team member that confirms the trip request, provides an upfront price quote (which would be free up to $25 using the free code), and uses the same marketplace technology powering the Uber app to help find a ride. To use this feature, one will need an SMS or text-based mobile phone to receive important messages about the ETA, the driver’s license plate details, and the driver’s name. Riders continue to receive messages before and during the trip, and once it concludes, will receive a trip receipt. There is no extra charge for using this service, though carrier message and data rates may apply.

SCAMS - INFO FROM HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT REGARDING SCAMS!
Community Resource Deputy Jeffery Merry, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office: As you know, the residents of Sun City Center are continually victimized by scammers. These fraudsters prey on our residents just because of their age. Con artists seek out seniors for a variety of reasons, number one being their access to money in their retirement accounts. According to the Federal Trade Commission, Romance Scams accounted for more monetary losses than any other scam in 2018. And the losses are expected to be higher in 2019, with over triple the number of cases since 2016. For those victims over 70, the median loss was over $10,000.00. These scammers find their victims on social media sites, such as FaceBook, Instagram, Plenty of Fish, Meet me.com, just to name a few. They build trust and create the illusion of an actual relationship by chatting several times a day and crafting their stories and answers based on information obtained from the victim themselves. Then comes the request for money. The scammers often say they: Work on an oil rig, Are in the military, Are a doctor with an international organization, They ask for money to: Pay for a plane ticket or other travel expenses. Pay for surgery or other medical expenses. Pay customs fees to retrieve something. Pay off gambling debts. Pay for a visa or other official travel documents. The scammers will ask for the money to be loaded onto gift cards, deposited into mysterious bank accounts, and purchase bitcoin. NEVER send money or gifts to someone you have not met in person. If you suspect a romance scam: Get a second opinion, Stop all payment methods, Stop all communication with the personuBlock all communication methods with the person, Report the person to the social media site, Report to the Federal Trade Commission. Report to Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

VA CAREGIVER SUPPORT PROGRAM - Caring for those who care
Caregivers play an important role in the health and well-being of Veterans, and caring for a wounded, ill, or injured Veteran is not easy work. Without family caregivers, many of these Veterans could not remain close to family and in their communities.  VA knows that family caregivers who care for Veterans in their own homes have been putting Veterans first since the founding of our nation. That’s why VA’s Caregiver Support Program provides training and education to enhance the caregiver’s role. The program focus is to improve the care-giver’s understanding of the impact their work has on the health and well-being of the Veteran they care for and their families as well as how their work affects them, too.  Caregivers who participate in VA’s Caregiver Support Program tell us that the program has helped them feel more confident in their role, that it has made them even more proficient in supporting the Veteran they care for in treatment and rehabilitation.  To learn more about the VA Caregiver Support Program, visit the Caregiver Website or call the Caregiver Support Line at 1-855-260-3274. You can also contact your local Caregiver Support Coordinator located at every VA medi-cal center across the United States. 


VA CLAIMS DECISIONS FAST!
Since you last filed a VA disability claim, VA has improved the claim process by launching the Decision Ready Claims (DRC) Program.
When you file a DRC, you can get a decision on your claim in 30 days or less by working with an accredited Veterans Service Organization (VSO). Your VSO will help you gather and submit all relevant and required evidence so your claim is ready for VA to make a decision when you submit it.
You can now file a DRC for the following claim types: Direct Service Connection Claims, Presumptive Service Connection Claims, Secondary Service Connection Claims, Increased Disability Claims, Dependency and Indemnity Compensation (DIC) Claims, Pre-Discharge Claims. Don’t miss out on this important opportunity to get a faster claim decision. Learn more about the DRC Program, including eligibility requirements, what medical evidence you need to submit, and how to find an accredited VSO at https://www.benefits.va.gov/compensation/drc.asp. If you are a military veteran, dependent, or survivor and want to know more about the wide range of benefits and programs that are available to you, Hillsborough County Consumer & Veterans Services can help and there is never a fee. For information, go to HCFLGov.net/Veterans, or call (813) 635-8316. Disabled Veterans can reach our local DAV at 633-0346.


VETERANS, DISABLED AMERICAN DAV CHAPTER 110 has two main services or programs.  
One is to provide no cost transportation to ambulatory veterans who have medical appointments at the James A. Haley Veteran’s Hospital in Tampa.  Transportation is provided up to five days a week depending upon the veterans’ needs.  The other service is to provide veterans or their spouses/families with information on services and benefits that they may be eligible for.  That service includes the filing or assistance with filing the various VA claim forms, as well as helping them navigate the VA system.  The Chapter Service Officers are available from 10AM to 2PM Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.  To make an appointment, call 813-331-3871.  Walk-ins are welcome.  We are located at 1002 Cherry Hills Drive.  If you need a ride to the James A. Haley VA Hospital, please call 813-642-0302 a week before you need a ride to ensure a seat on the van.  The van starts its pick-up service about 6:45AM and usually returns to Sun City Center between 11:30-12:30.  When scheduling your appointments at the hospital let your scheduler know that you are riding the DAV van and they will try to schedule your appointment so that you may avail yourself of the van service. DAV van (drivers and dispatchers) and Chapter Service Officers staff are all volunteers with no charges to the veterans.  Monetary donations and volunteer help are always welcome and greatly appreciated.  Everything received goes 100% to support the two DAV programs mentioned above in Sun City Center.

YMCA SUMMARY OF NEW VA Program
The YMCA and the VA have partnered to make programs accessible to Veterans. Veterans referred by their health coach at the James a Haley Veterans Hospital are eligible to attend the Y for 12 weeks. The purpose is for them to attend the “program” on their referral sheet a minimum of two times per week. The program options include, but are not limited to: Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates, Y Weight, Water Aerobics. Though the agreement is for them to come twice per week only for their program, we welcome our Veterans to come to the Y unlimited times during their 12 weeks. They MUST scan in each visit. According to the VA rules, they are only eligible for additional referrals to the program if they come at least 19 times during their 12 weeks. We track this by their gate swipes. For more info, contact James A Haley VA at 813-558-3969 and ask for Whole Health Program or visit Look Inside Whole Health for Life.

Those who have been craving for the fruit cakes, your wait is just about over.  The fruit cakes for the Lions Club will arrive the week of October 26.  After what everyone has been through this year, it is time to treat yourselves! The cost is still $5.00 each for a one-pound cake.  If you would like to purchase Claxton Fruit Cakes, you can get them at Boggs Jewelry Store, or from any Lions Club member in Sun City Center.  Those who can't get out to pick up a fruit cake will be pleased to know that a dedicated Lion will happily deliver the cakes to your front door.  For more information, call Harry and Maryanne Eberle at 609-668-5767 or 609-694-8235; or Terry and Ellen McGovern at 813-633-4202. If there is no answer, please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.  Because of COVID and the shutdown of the normal meeting facility, the Lions are meeting once a month at the Elks Club in Ruskin at 11:45 a.m.  Please call the Eberles at 609-694-8235 for more information or to make a reservation.
