Hot Line Coming Soon
The Computer Committee is establishing a Capitol Lakes HOT-LINE that computer users can join. It will be exclusively for Capitol Lakes residents and will allow one to poll other residents, who are part of the group, about various things: Where to find a good steak dinner? Or Vegan restaurant? Where is the nearest State Park and what can you see or do there? Can anyone recommend a Dentist? An Attorney? A doctor? Where are you buying cheap gasoline now days? Whatever you would like to get some information on, you can ask your neighbors. It's like visiting over the back yard fence and it's absolutely FREE. More information and details will be coming in next week's Scoop.
Lynn Phelps will be in the Art Workshop (to the right when you exit the Heights elevators on the PL level) collecting old and unwanted medications (pills, liquids, ointments, etc.) on Monday, January 7 from 10:00 am to noon. Lynn will take them to the police station for disposal.
