October 2022 Events and News

From the President’s Crayon…

Hello PC Seniors!

Fall is officially here, get out and enjoy the changing of the leaves before the first snow falls.

Check out the wonderful list of events coming up in October, and join in for the fun!  We are grateful that our events are getting participants, but we would love to see some new faces!  

Since I am the presenter, I would like to especially invite you to a Final Friday Social Hour on October 28, from 4 to 6 PM.  Peggy Fletcher and I have just returned from an amazing small ship sailing trip to Greece, and will share some of our best photos and stories…I swear we won’t bore you!  Bring nummy snacks and a beverage of your choice…oh and don’t tell anyone but it’s also a BD celebration for yours truly and Mary Kohout…no presents, just your presence!

Finally, great NEWS:  A special thank you goes out to the Park City Community Foundation, who has awarded the PC Seniors with a grant to get our web site up and running.  STEP UP, members who would like to give us input on how to proceed with this…this is YOUR Senior Center, and if you have some knowledge or skills on how to proceed, we would value your input.  If you would like to advise or help us build our website, click this link to contact us at [email protected], and thanks in advance!

Woodside II Committee Update

by Francie McNally

The Board of Trustees of the Park City Senior Citizens, Inc. approved the draft MOU presented by the City at their Board meeting on Monday, September 12, 2022 with a few minor changes (address for senior center, formatting on items 3H 1) 2) and change the year on timeline to September 2022). Jason Glidden made the changes to the document and now it will go before the City Council for final review at their October 27 meeting. The week following, we should plan the signing and publicize the event with media, KPCW, Park Record interviews etc.

We will post an update regarding the City Council meeting when we have more information.

Park City needs your feedback! The Park Silly Sunday Market and Kimball Art Festival contracts are up for review in Park City. There are several ways to provide comments before the October 3 deadline.

Please take the following surveys (each survey should take 5 minutes of your time):

Public feedback and survey responses will be shared during a Council meeting this Fall.

Community Day of Giving is November 4

Have you enjoyed this newsletter, the Golden Art Club, the free or low cost events at the Senior Center, our Senior Advocate Kelly, and the community awareness of the Seniors to our media and local government representatives?  I hope so, and now is the time to help support these and more future programs, activities, and advocacy.

The Park City Seniors are participating in Live PC Give PC for the third year now, where Park City non-profits solicit your financial support.  The Community Day of Giving will be held online beginning Midnight on Nov 4, but early donations are being accepted NOW as well. 

You can donate now by clicking on the photo, or this link, which will take you to our page on the Live PC Give PC Website.  We are also setting up a  ‘donation station’ at the Senior Center, where we can help you make that computer donation. Afraid of computers? No worries, just bring in a check or cash donation to the Center any Monday or Thursday in October — we can take that too, and add it to the web site for you. Any and all donation amounts are appreciated!

We have grown a lot this past couple of years, and there is so much more coming up for the Park City Seniors, but we need this annual financial support to keep our momentum going!

Out of nowhere, you receive a call or a screen pops up on your computer, pretending to be from a reputable company like Microsoft or an anti-virus company. They tell you that they have detected a virus or an error on your computer, and probably warn that you will lose all of your data if you shut down or restart your computer.  In order to fix your computer, they direct you to a website where they instruct you to click on a link, download software, or input a special code, which allows them access to your computer. Sometimes they “scan” your computer to try to convince you there is something wrong. Don’t believe them!

Don’t give them access to your computer! If you do, the scammer can look on your computer for your personal or financial information, add malware that really will infect your computer, or add spyware so they can get your information in the future.

Instead, try exiting the internet, restarting your computer, or manually pressing the “off” button on your computer. Or try contacting a reputable source for help. Be careful though when searching for businesses on the internet – sometimes illegitimate services have paid for ads and created websites that might lead you to think they are the real thing!

Remember: real tech support or other computer companies don’t just contact you out of the blue.
