Tip for keeping track of donations offered

Photo Credit: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Maria Bigelow suggests a way to keep track of your charitable donations.

It is the time of year when we are solicited for money for great causes and our kind hearts want to give to everyone. And once you give to an organization, they mail you a request for additional donations multiple times throughout the year.

And then you can’t remember if you donated already or if it is a reminder for your yearly contribution. If your kind heart gave every time, you would go broke quickly. So how do you remember if you have already donated or not?

An idea would be to keep the letter of request paper clipped to your calendar or in a file close to your desk with the date of payment written on the letter. I never want to discourage giving, but I know the requests in the mail can get overwhelming and confusing.

Staying organized will help make sure your kind heart is not being taken advantage of.

Call 503-635-3758 to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations. The LOACC is located at 505 G. Ave. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.

Here are some of the activities coming up at LOACC in the coming week:

Friday, Nov. 14

We have all heard fish is good for you, and you can’t get a better deal on a seafood meal than at the ACC. Do your body right and join us for cod with lemon butter, orzo and snickerdoodles for dessert, served by Lake Oswego Rotary. At 1 p.m., Frank Woodman is showing “The General” (1927). Starring Buster Keaton, this movie has it all — action, adventure and comedy.

Saturday, Nov. 15

We are open from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., and beginning in January, we will be offering a boot camp class on Saturday. Boot camp is a great workout; it will get your heart pumping and make you sweat, great for those that work during the week. Registration is in December.

Monday, Nov. 17

The ACC Learning Group meets at 9:30 a.m. and Art Henderson has lined up Everett Williams to share his fascinating travels to Indonesia. For lunch, Lake Oswego Municipal Employees Association is serving a tender chicken cordon bleu, rice pilaf and seriously good brownies for dessert.

Tuesday, Nov. 18

Caregiver Support Group is meeting from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Wednesday, Nov. 19

The United Methodist Church is serving a lunch that is reminiscent of the old TV dinners with Salisbury steak and mashed potatoes with peanut butter cookies for dessert (aluminum serving tray optional). After lunch, bring your computer questions to Supervised Lab from 1 to 2:30 p.m. A workshop in a series sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Association titled “Conversations about Dementia” will be in the Alder Room from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.
