President’s Report by Chester Faulkner

Winter has made things more difficult for the Executive to try and make the Corona Virus isolation more bearable.  It has made things difficult and more necessary for all of us to keep contact with everyone especially during lockdowns.  The executive has continued to work through monthly Zoom meetings, trying to find a way to keep us all connected until we can resume our normal social life and meet in person once again. 
We have scheduled Dave Boyd from the Hamilton Police Department for a February 9th, a Zoom meeting to talk about Frauds and Scams especially those focusing on seniors. It will be from 10:00 to 11:00 and there will be an invitation sent out prior to the meeting.  If you hope to attend, please RSVP to the invitation (will be sent out the week of February 1st.
With Covid-19 getting worse by the day, please follow the safety guidelines and stay safe.
We should also like to remind you of our Facebook page, Chester Newz.  We have a growing group so feel free to send us a friend request so that your posts can be seen. We also have a website, website ARM Chapter 18/21 - Hamilton-Wentworth/Upper Grand.  If you ever want something posted just email us at
