A special thank you to the United Methodist Church of Follansbee WV for your collaboration in providing space for AARP Tax assistance on Thursdays, allowing us to accommodate the additional tax assistance needs.

IRS representative Cassel Pulliam visits AARP Tax Site at the Brooke County Senior Center to complete a review.  His services and assistance with tax questions were greatly appreciated while he was there.  Pictured above Cassel is reviewing RSVP volunteer Sonny Crossley. Thank you for assisting the RSVP.  The AARP Tax assistance is currently scheduled through April 9, 2013.  Bill Lantz, District 1 Coordinator is working to add a second day of service starting in March.  Please be patient if trying to call 304.527.3410. We are very busy and have started a waiting list for the new days to be scheduled.

A little more about William Lantz: (Bill) started with RSVP on January 4, 2002, as a volunteer instructed under George Weigel serving 1,198 hours as AARP Tax Assistant.  George recently retired his position as 1st District Coordinator and recommended Bill as his replacement.  Bill accepted the position and attended training in Morgantown under Tom Ludwig, Betty Steen, Linda French, and Aaron Ballinger. Bill then instructed his team of three new volunteers, Elwood Beihl, Jr., Beckey Weigand, George Dragonir, and updated his right hand man Sonny Crossley serving approximately 100 hours.  Bill was very instrumental in the recruitment of the three new volunteers who now assist him.  Bill was also crucial with implementation of the networking of computers and efiling of taxes.  Good job Bill, we appreciate your hard work and dedication in keeping the AARP Tax Assistance program available to residents of Brooke and Hancock Counties. 

Bill has also assisted 8 hours with City of Follansbee beautification while maintaining his own garden.  He has assisted with 2 hours of service transporting at the Brooke County Fair and assisting 43 hours serving in fundraising events for Brooke County Senior Center and Brooke Hancock Ohio Marshall RSVP. 

Bill’s total 1,351 hours of service has added to his community $28,980 the past eleven years serving directly at least 2,000 community members.  Again, thank you for all you do, we appreciate your service.  

URGENT!... Brooke-Hancock Nutrition is looking for a volunteer, Mon thru Fri, at The Greater Weirton Senior Center. Please call 304.527.3410.  One hour per day!  BINGO assistance is needed on Friday evenings (smoking)
