Scams topic of talk at meeting

Forty-four members of the Delta Tau chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma met Sept. 20 at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Seymour for the first meeting of the year.

Delta Kappa Gamma is an honor society for women in the field of education.

Following the dinner, Terrye Davidson introduced the speaker, Amy Artis, who is an outreach specialist from Consumer Protection Services of Indiana. Artis talked about some of the scams that recently have been reported in this area. One of her key points warned members never to give out personal information on the telephone. Last year in Indiana, the IRS scam was the largest.

Donations of school supplies were gathered for area schoolchildren.

Minutes were read by secretary Barb Schuley, and Lois Gueder presented the treasurer’s report.

The “Glad You Came” awards of mums were won by Nancy Cherry, Mary Beth Gibson and Carolyn Bridges. Phyllis Nantz won the drawing based on perfect attendance and will receive free dues for a year.

Olga Otte closed out the meeting leading the group in song.
