Join Penn’s Village on Thursday, February 18th at 11:00 a.m. for “Protecting Your Financial Security.”

As we happily grow older in our own homes, our nest eggs seem to be increasingly attractive targets for the dishonest. Penn’s Village sponsor East River Bank will conduct this workshop designed to alert us to the types of scams and frauds we need to be aware of and ways in which we can protect ourselves.

The workshop will begin with a 30-minute informational video that will cover identity theft, Ponzi schemes and scams related to the Internet, sweepstakes, home health care, hiring contractors and those specifically aimed at veterans.

There will be plenty of time for questions and all attendees will receive a fraud prevention checklist and contact information for agencies that will help us take action if we should become a victim.

We will meet in the ­­­­Harding Room of the Christ Church Neighborhood House, 20 North American Street. The Neighborhood House is next to Christ Church on 2nd Street above Market. Penn’s Village members and volunteers attend free of charge. We would very much appreciate a $5 donation from other guests, payable at the door. We apologize but the location is not handicapped accessible.

Please RSVP by calling 215 925 7333 or emailing
