Spectrumly Speaking
May 2016  

Welcome May!

Remember those goals  you set at the beginning of the year - the ones that have been perhaps placed on the back burner?  Now is the time to kick things into high gear and accomplish them.  May is designated as National Re-commitment Month!

Make this month count!
Accomplish your goals!
You can do this!

Wishing you and your family wonderful, bright,  sunshine filled days.  Get outside and enjoy!

Retiring Solo  

In Canada, single retirees account for 43% of people aged 65 and over. Whether they are single by choice or as a result of a separation or the death of a
spouse, retirement is more precarious than for a couple. This makes prudent financial planning an even greater necessity.

  • On May 7th, Karen volunteered at Barrie's Biggest Indoor Garage Sale supporting Autism and is happy to report that just over $23,750 was raised.  These funds will go a long way to enhance the great programming  and support that Simcoe County Autism provides local families.   Sincere thank you's to all the volunteers and the Patchless MC Group!
  • Our Limited Trading Authorizations have been updated and we have sent them out, to those that take advantage of this program, for signing.   If you have not completed and sent yours back to us, please do so.  This will allow us to be able to act more efficiently on your behalf.
Tip of the Month - Invite Friends Over

Going out to eat or "out on the town" has a way of completely destroying both your food budget and your entertainment budget in one fell swoop.  No matter what, it is always cheaper to stay in with people and come up with your own entertainment.

Instead of hitting the town, host a fun pot-luck dinner with your friends.  Play cards, sit around a fire pit or watch movies with your guests.  You'll save money and have a blast!
