February 2019 eNEWS for Boomers and Beyond
You are receiving this email as a way to keep you informed of the upcoming activities hosted by Pax Christi Boomers and Beyond Ministry. We hope you can join us and also invite your friends.
The cold winter temps of a January afternoon were totally forgotten with a fun gathering of 23 people at Pax Christi to watch the movie “Cat Ballou.” It had us all relaxed and laughing from the start. Popcorn and treats were provided and made us feel as if we were really at the theater! During intermission cake was served to celebrate the 70th birthday of a friend. This made the event even more wonderful, especially when Lee Marvin who starred in the movie sang Happy Birthday too!
Pictures sometimes tell it all! We are looking for someone who would enjoy taking photos at the Boomer and Beyond events so we can add some pictures and pizzazz to our eNEWS. If you are interested in taking photos, please email Jean Thoresen, staff liaison at email@example.com, for more information!

Technology! Helpful when used for good, but there is a dark side which allows scammers to know so much about us. Scams and fraud, like fake emails and trolling phone calls, are part of our world today. If you would like information on how to protect yourself, set aside some time to attend this helpful Boomer and Beyond Event. “Be Aware of Scams and Identity Theft,” will be presented by Pauline Sager, Investigative Aide for the Eden Prairie Police Department. She will teach us how to keep ourselves safe from scams and fraud with information on identifying red flags, tips on what to do if you are a victim of a scam, and news on common scams happening locally. There will be time for questions and answers after the presentation. Treats will be served.
