Current Activities:

During 2017, the TRICIA Support Group shall continue its mission. We plan to have four or possibly five seminars on an interesting mix of issues of importance and interest to the community.

Our first two events this year shall be as follows:

Mid-May (Date to be decided) – Presentation by a professional organization on the latest important issues regarding Social Security Benefits.

Information on the remaining events shall be posted as the year progresses.

All presentations are open to the community. The Support Group shall prepare an email (generally accompanied by a program flier and information on date, time and location) that will go out on the TRICIA email system. These events are generally held during the week in the evenings. A buffet dinner generally precedes the presentation.
