RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH STEAK & STORIES

Our speaker will be Corporal Korey Golcynski of the Clayton Police Department who will speak about cyber-crime and telephone scams. Cyber-crime and telephone scams are a sad by-product of our high-tech lives today. Clayton residents have recently fallen victim to telephone scams, perhaps even including some of our parishioners. While anyone can become a victim, many of these scams are specifically targeting senior citizens. To minimize the potential for harm in the future, Corporal Korey Golcynski and Detective Stephanie Powers of the Clayton Police Department have developed a presentation to inform the public about these crimes. Join us to learn what the scammers are up to right now and how best to protect yourself and your family. Cost: $20. Please RSVP by Noon on Monday, January 7 to
