The Week Ahead

There are several things happening this week in and around the Warrendale neighborhood. I want to give everyone a quick look ahead at them.

Volunteers from AARP will offer income tax assistance to low income residents on Tuesday, February 16 at the Edison Branch of the Detroit Public Library (18400 Joy Rd.). This service will be available from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Detroit residents can learn how to protect themselves from scams and fraud and maintain homeownership at the Consumer Protection and Financial Fraud Workshop, hosted by the City of Detroit Senior Citizens Department, on Wednesday, February 17 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Northwest Activities Center (18100 Meyers).

The workshop will inform attendees about assistance with energy bills and delinquent property taxes as well as products and services from HUD and the FHA.  Representatives will be in attendance from the Fannie Mae Foundation, Neighborhood Legal Aid, Wayne County Treasurer, United Housing Coalition, and the Department of Human Services.  Wayne County Legal Services will answer questions related to landlord/tenant and probate issues. The Detroit Police Department will speak about the latest scams.  While the workshop is focused on seniors, all residents are welcome.  

The event, including a continental breakfast and lunch, is free and open to the public.  Interested participants are requested to RSVP by Tuesday, February 16.  For more information, or to RSVP, call (313) 224-5444.

Finally, Do “U” Ceramics will lead a session of ceramic painting for fathers and children this Saturday, February 20 from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. at the Edison Branch of the Detroit Public Library.
