June 10, 2020--Jae Oh: Medicare

Medicare is the cornerstone of retirement planning in the U.S. Retirement planning includes a number of components: controlling costs is vital, and healthcare costs can dominate the list, with recent estimates ranging between $130,000 and $150,000 for a person turning 65 years old. Jae Oh, author of Maximize Your Medicare, Certified Financial Planner™ explains why basic misunderstandings about Medicare lead to confusion, which create errors in controlling these costs. Advertisements, the general media and politics are combining to make understanding Medicare more difficult, as they distract people from correctly understanding Medicare and healthcare, in general. Mr. Oh will provide basic ideas on why these misunderstandings persist — and provide key takeaways — so that people can identify what is important in personal decision-making.

Meeting begins at 9:30 via Zoom for RSVPed participants ONLY. Meetings are free for members, please sign up today via the RSVP link.

August 12, 2020--Ric Mixter: Offshore Outposts

The most desolate duty stations for lighthouse keepers were in the middle of the Great Lakes, marking underwater mountains that rose up from the
depths to snag unknowing schooners and steamers. Marking these obstructions took innovation and unprecedented amounts of money, and men had to stay on post to make sure the lights were lit at night. Ric Mixter, a former president of the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association, provides insight into the crews that stayed at Stannard Rock, Spectacle Reef, Huron Island and DeTour Reef. He shares incredible stories of rescues, including the explosion at Stannard that took one Coast Guardsman's life. Also included is video of how the lights look today, and what their current mission is.

Meeting begins at 9:30 via Zoom for RSVPed participants ONLY. Meetings are free for members, please sign up today via the RSVP link.
