President Parrish welcomed everyone and then introduced the guest speaker. Charlotte Whittaker, from the Ohio County AARP. She presented a very informative program on scams affecting the over-50 population.

Ms. Whittaker presented the group with some promotional items and a door prize was won by Helen Kereiakes.
President Parrish provided a report on the 2015 Annual Conference held last month in Lexington. The chapter actively helped with the very successful conference. Along with the State KPR Board, the Barren River Chapter will host the next conference.
