A Medicare Discussion: Navigating Annual Enrollment

Thursday, September 14, 2017 at the Quechee Club

Over the past 3 years, the QLLA Community Affairs Committee has been
involved in addressing potential issues that may confront individuals
through various stages of their life, by way of the Life Transitions
Program. We are fortunate to reside in the Upper Valley where there are
excellent resources available to residents. As part of the Community
Affairs Committee's mission to educate the local community and pair
individuals with various lifestyle services, we invite attendees to join us
for an upcoming event hosted by The Quechee Club

Presenter: Patricia Coogan

Patricia Coogan is a volunteer for Senior Solutions, and in that role she
assists people signing up for Part D Drug Insurance programs and lectures
on Medicare. She is also a Research Professor of Public Health and
Epidemiology at Boston University, where her research interests include
the unintended effects of long-term medication use.

Senior Solutions is one of five Area Agencies on Aging in Vermont. It was
known as the Council on Aging for Southeastern Vermont before 2012. As
a non-profit community organization, Senior Solutions has provided Older
Americans Act social services to Vermonters 60 years and older, their
caregivers and families for over 30 years.

This is a complimentary event. Open to the public.

Refreshments will be served from 4:00pm - 4:30pm

A Record Breaking Year for the CHaD Gala

Thank you Quechee Community… You helped us reach a record high
donation for the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth!

On June 12, QLLA Charities, in partnership with the Quechee Club, hosted the annual CHaD Classic Golf Tournament. The weather was perfect, the golf courses were beautiful and the golfers were happy.  The tournament culminated in a delicious dinner, silent auction and awards ceremony.

On July 29, QLLA Charities, again in partnership with the Quechee Club, hosted the annual CHaD Gala. Our guests put on their dancing shoes to enjoy a dinner dance featuring the Brooks Hubbard Band and a wonderful Dinner prepared by Chef Bradshaw and his staff. Included in the night’s festivities was a spectacular silent auction and an entertaining live auction hosted by Jamie Polli of Burlington, VT.  An important part of the Gala was the introduction of “The Tree of Hope” which was patterned after the Tree on the wall at CHaD.  CHaD children traced their hands and sent them to us to reproduce.  Generous visitors and guests filled the tree with purchased branches and hands.  All enjoyed the colorful Tree in the Lobby of the Clubhouse.

As a result of the success of these 2 events, we were able to present a check for a record $135,000 to CHaD, bringing QLLA Charities’ 33-year total to over $2.365 million!  The funds raised by these events will help support the Child Advocacy and Protection Program (CAPP) and build on the endowment we started twelve years ago.  CAPP is a program within  CHaD and helps some of the most vulnerable children in our region - those who are the victims of neglect or abuse.

This achievement would not be possible were it not for the truly wonderful Quechee Community who provide so much help and support through volunteering and generous giving.  Of course our staff and facilities are the best in New England and they come through for us every year.
 
For your 33 years of support, your caring and your generosity, we offer a million thanks!  No… make that 2.365 million!
 
Gratefully,
