Senior investments talk planned at Computer Club meeting

By From page A16 | November 11, 2012

The Woodland Senior Center Computer Club’s final meeting of 2012 will start at 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26, at the center, 2001 East St. in Woodland.

Nancy J. Garton of Sacramento will speak about investments that are or may not be appropriate for senior citizens. The meeting is open to the adult public; light refreshments will be served.

Garton is a chartered life underwriter and registered representative of a major securities investment corporation and has been advising clients in Yolo and Sacramento counties for 35 years. But there will be no sales pitches for annuities maturing in 2050, say, or spiels promoting reverse mortgages.

A question-and-answer session will give attendees the opportunity to ask about specific investment areas.

Garton holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the University of Bridgepor in Connecticut. Married, she has an adult son. She is a member of the Sacramento Estate Planning Council and has acted as an adviser to Rio Americano High School’s Interact Club as part of her Rotary Club service.

She has served on the board of Friends of the Sacramento Crisis Nurseries, and has continued fundraising efforts again this year on behalf of the Sacramento Ballet, chairing sales of calendars depicting dance interaction between members of the ballet company and area firefighters.

The club’s board of directors will meet following the program, and members will be eligible to participate in a drawing for prizes. Dues are $12 per year and 2013 fees may be paid at the meeting.

The club offers various computer classes at affordable prices, subject to availability of instructors, as well as open computer labs on Fridays from noon to 3 p.m. The lab fee is $1. A signup sheet is available at the senior welcome desk at the center for classes.
