    Cameron Park is also having a presentation on Medicare & Medicare supplements on 11/7 from 10-11AM FOR A $10 FEE FOR RESIDENTS!!!! All other places are free - come on Cam. Park, get real! Not all meetings at the Community Center require a fee.

    Cameron Park is also having informational discussions on "Understanding Medicare & Medicare Supplements" on 11/7 at a charge of $10 for Cameron Park residents. Why does the CPCSD believe they must charge for EVERYTHING held at their center. How about doing some things for NO CHARGE for Seniors once in awhile?

    They are likely to be speaking to an empty room.
