President, Hugh Armstrong, gave a welcoming address and touched on some of the many  accomplishments we have achieved in the past 10 years. A card with a brief history of  these years was available to all guests to take home. Cards are available in the Hub if you  would like one.

The Sheriff’s Department warns residents to “Beware”!

Staying Connected hosted an important presentation by Lt. Eric Calendine of the Beaufort County Sheriff’s Department entitled “Scams – What You Need to Know” in the Lakehouse Ballroom on December 7th.  Lt. Calendine shared the latest Scams by phone, social media, text and email that are successfully targeting the residents of Sun City.  Scammers prey on the inherent trust, compassion, fear and naivety of seniors.   They are ruthless! The Lieutenant cited specific examples of scams that have bilked Sun City residents out of life savings and he encouraged everyone in the audience to be diligent, untrusting and skeptical of any scenario that seems suspicious.  He reminded everyone that a call to the Sheriff’s Department can prevent a financial crime that you may not be able to recover from.  His presentation slides are available to review, print or download under The Resource Hub tab on our website.  Just click on Presentations / Training Videos and select the Scam presentation.
