Rhawnhurst NORC sets next meeting schedules


The Rhawn­hurst Nat­ur­ally Oc­cur­ring Re­tire­ment Com­munity will hold its next lunch­eon at  noon on Thursday, Oct. 25, at the Samuel Ta­bas House, 2101 Strahle St.

Joey Joy will provide mu­sic­al en­ter­tain­ment. The cost is $2.

The next meet­ing after that will be on Thursday, Nov. 29, at the Con­greg­a­tions of Ner Zedek, 7520 Bustleton Ave. The guest will be An­thony J. Mele, ex­ec­ut­ive dir­ect­or of Cath­ol­ic Clin­ic­al Con­sult­ants, who will speak about beat­ing the “winter blahs.”

At Rhawn­hurst NORC’s last meet­ing on Sept. 27, the guest speak­ers ad­dressed the state’s new voter iden­ti­fic­a­tion law.

Five days later, a Com­mon­wealth Court judge delayed im­ple­ment­a­tion of the law un­til next year.

Don Garecht, a deputy in the of­fice of city elec­tions com­mis­sion­er Al Schmidt, told the crowd that the dead­line to ap­ply for an ab­sent­ee bal­lot is Oct. 30. Ab­sent­ee bal­lots must be re­turned by Nov. 2. The elec­tion is Nov. 6.

Mike Tom­lin­son, the Re­pub­lic­an can­did­ate in the 5th Sen­at­ori­al Dis­trict, greeted NORC mem­bers after the meet­ing. The group gen­er­ally does not al­low can­did­ates or elec­ted of­fi­cials to speak to mem­bers dur­ing meet­ings so close to Elec­tion Day. ••End­Frag­ment
