Guest Speaker
Pres. Paul Cotton introduced Sgt. Sharon Cavanaugh, Laconia Police Dept., to the club. She advises that identity theft is a real and wide-spread problem where people are advises to take certain precautions to protect their personal information. There are three types of offenses: financial, criminal, and cloning. In the first, personal information is used to gain credit or to access bank accounts. Criminal identity theft is when someone's information is used to secure driver's licenses for other government documents. Cloning is when your information is used to actually allow someone to masquerade as you. Locally, identity thieves use low-tech methods such as searching garbage and mail boxes for information. Mail should be kept secure and trashed documents shredded. If you think you may be a victim of identity theft you may get help from here:,, 1-877-IDTHEFT, 1-877-FTC-HELP, and 1-888-5-OPTOUT.

All Set
Sec.'y Kathy Calvin advises that Ed Darling says we will not be needed to staff the phones for the Santa Fund Telethon.
