Time: 10:00 a.m. to Noon
Where: Oakwood Village University Woods Center for Arts and Education 6205 Mineral Point Road
Registration: Required; Deadline: April 18,
Have you ever given any thought as to all the information about your life contained in such places as bank, savings, credit card, health care, health insurance, and retirement accounts? If you were to die suddenly, how easy would it be for your surviving family to pick up the pieces, close your accounts to prevent re-use by identity thieves, and disperse your estate? Is all that information safely stored such that neither theft, fire, tornado, nor any other calamity can permanently destroy it?
And what about your online identities? Do you have several favorite passwords that you routinely use across many different online accounts? Do words like identity theft, phishing, public WiFi, and travel security concern you? Do you cringe at the thought of having to invent a new password to remember? Are you aware of steps you can take to protect your physical (local) and online (digital) data from loss or exposure to unauthorized entities? If you're interested in best practices for protecting your personal and financial information, we invite you to attend this session.
Food pantry contributions
The pantry for this event will be the First United Methodist Church. Both cash and checks payable to that organization will be accepted.
Enter Oakwood grounds at the traffic light at Island Drive and Mineral Point Road. Take the left fork and then the second driveway on the right to enter visitor underground parking. Push the button for assistance. Park in any visitor stall; take elevator to first floor lobby where signs or a receptionist will help. When you exit the underground parking the garage door opens automatically. You may also park in a surface visitor spot (marked spaces along the drive and up the hill toward the large lot). On foot, enter Heritage (6205 Mineral Point Road) at its main entrance (third driveway on the right, at stop sign) or enter the auditorium doors directly from the lower drive.
