News Journal

WILMINGTON — Members of the Wilmington Savings Bank Clinton County Senior Center are invited to a free cookout lunch to be followed by an informative presentation on senior scams.

Wilmington Savings Bank will sponsor the cookout on Friday, July 15, at the center, 717 N. Nelson Ave. The cookout — featuring picnic fare like hamburgers, hot dogs and more — will start at noon.

A representative of the Ohio Attorney General’s office will give the consumer awareness program at 1 p.m. According to the OAG web site, seniors are particularly vulnerable to fraud and scams, but many incidents likely go unreported. The program presenter will focus on the latest scams targeting the senior population and share how seniors can protect themselves and loved ones.

“We are pleased to offer this cookout and glad to schedule this program for seniors in the community,” said Tom Burns, president of Wilmington Savings Bank, which made a major financial gift that helped build the center in 2001.

This cookout is not sponsored by, nor affiliated with, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, which does not endorse or recommend Wilmington Savings Bank or any products or services affiliated with the bank; services are being offered or provided by Wilmington Savings Bank.

Members planning to attend the cookout/presentation are asked to call 937-382-7170 to confirm their attendance so that the proper amount of food can be prepared.

An annual membership to the center is $20. Non-members can get more information about the center and inquire about membership by contacting Stella Cramer at 382-7170 or at [email protected] Information can also be found on the web site:
