Corey Callaway, CFS Advisors LLC, www.callawayfinancial.com/ email firstname.lastname@example.org spoke about the book Microtrends Squared: The New Small Forces Driving Today's Big Disruptions, by Mark Penn. amzn.to/2F6ARPq The first thing Corey mentioned was the chapter titled "Graying Bachelors" which got everyone's attention. "The newest, hottest, and most in-demand bachelor is the guy in his sixties, seventies, and even eighties who is single, often from divorce, and has found renewal in later-stage dating....by age 64, there are only 62 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women." [Note: this is not news to us older women, right?] One consequence of "renewal in later-stage dating" among older adults is "a huge climb in sexually-transmitted diseases." So be careful out there, Ambassadors men and women, but live your life and have fun. It's impossible to recap everything Corey talked about but you can buy the book from Amazon or check it out from the Arlington Library which has 3 copies, 2 of which were "in" and available for reserve/pickup as of the morning of 6/13.
Alicia Hoang from "Don't Forget to Feed Me," non-profit pet food bank
www.df2fm.org told us about the work her organization does. They provide free pet food (never a charge) to local partner agencies to help people who might have to give up their pet because they can't afford the food bill, and they also provide food to people who have suffered some sort of "disaster" so they don't lose their pets, plus do other good works. They seek volunteers to help at their facility and also solicit donations to help buy the food (mostly dry food for dogs and cats). Check out their website at the link above, or you can give them a call at (817) 334-0727.
