GOOD NEWS FOR THOSE WHO TYPICALLY DO NOT FILE FEDERAL TAX RETURNS
The latest from the Treasury Department.
If you receive Social Security and do not typically file federal tax returns, the treasury department has reversed its position and you will now NOT have to file a simple tax return to receive your Economic Impact Payment of $1200.
You can find more information by clicking on the link below to an article in the Washington Post.
ALL TOGETHER ALONE WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
The Center's Quilters have started a COVID-19 Homemade Face Mask project to help fulfill the need in the area. Click on the link below for patterns and directions, needed material and how the masks are to be collected. The quilters are prioritizing the Meals-on-Wheels drivers, long term care facilities and group homes while distributing over 230 handmade masks. If you personally want a mask call the Center at 541-296-4788 and we will put on the list.
The Center is closed, and all classes and activities are canceled except for MEDICARE HELP, call the local coordinator at 541-288-8341, and the MEDICAL EQUIPMENT LOAN CLOSET call 541-296-4788 to see if we have the equipment you need and to schedule a time for pick-up.
TAX AIDE has been canceled indefinitely but the filing date has been extended to July 15th. I have not heard if or when the program will start up again but hopefully will have some idea by the first of May.
Meals-on-Wheels is delivering meals but is not serving meals in the dining room. If you want a take-out meal, call Meals-on-Wheels at 541-298-8333 before 10:00 and pick up your meal at noon but not before.
CIRCLES OF CARE

Since last week's question was so popular, I'm going to take it up a notch and see if you can remember the lead character in this classic American Western television series that aired on CBS from 1957 through 1963. For this week's "Remember When" question, in the half hour television series Have Gun Will Travel (which I do remember watching) what was the name of the gentleman gunfighter who travels around the Old West working as a mercenary gunfighter for people who hire him to solve their problems? And for bonus points, who was the actor that played that character?
