Reitemeyer had been the Vice Chair; she replaces Dr. Phil Linfante as the Trustee leader. Singh has been a longtime member of the Trustees and as an Executive Board Member.Brown has been a Trustee for several years; before that she was the Chair of the WCCC Foundation Board. Maier, a member of the Trustees for three years, joined the Trustees after serving with the Foundation for a number of years.

“This is an exciting time for Warren Community College,” said Reitemeyer. “We feel the college is on solid ground but we still have many challenges ahead. As a Trustee team we are all on the same page; that’s to make the Warren experience for students and the community be the best it can be and meet their needs.”

MARKLEY INSURANCE ANGELS FOR AGING – DECEMBER 2020

On Dec. 9, members of the Carbon County Area Agency on Aging met at Markley Insurance and Financial Services to collect Christmas gifts donated for local seniors in the Carbon County area through a campaign organized by Angels for Aging.

During the campaign, the Carbon County Area Agency on Aging supplied the names of 45 seniors as well as two suggestions for Christmas presents to their partner in the campaign, Markley Insurance and Financial Services in Lehighton. Upon receiving the names and suggestions, the insurance company hung the seniors’ names and gift suggestions on a Christmas tree in their office for clients, public and staff to take. Once taking a name, these individuals were responsible for purchasing, wrapping and returning the seniors’ gifts to the Markley insurance office.

Susan Zeigler, administrator for the Carbon County Area Agency on Aging, said the agency provides services and assistance to people 60 or older to help them remain in their homes and provides social activities through senior centers, Medicare assistance, and protective services in cases of abuse or exploitation.

Zeigler said the senior names they provided for the Angels for Aging campaign were people who would likely not receive a present this year due to distant family or because they did not have a family at all. A majority of suggestions were provided by personal care aides who work through the agency, and the gifts suggested included items such as gift cards as well as blankets and bedding to keep warm during the winter months.

Zeigler said, “It’s going to help them know that somebody cares about them, that they’re not forgotten. I think with just the present it’s just a little token, but it’s going to help so much with that social isolation that they’re feeling right now and the despair that everybody is feeling right now ’cause this virus is really playing havoc on all of our mental health. We’re just trying to brighten up Christmas.”

Zeigler thanked Angels for Aging, Markley Insurance and Financial Services and the community for their help in making the campaign a success, saying, “It’s very humbling to see the outpouring of the community in this project. It was more than what we expected.”

Larry Markley of Markley Insurance and Financial Services also expressed the success of the event.

Although people who contributed were only asked to donate two items, many people provided even more than what was suggested.

“We do know that many people included sweets or candies or maybe just a few extra things for them so there’s likely over 100 gifts there,” Markley said.

With COVID-19 impacting the normal proceedings of the holiday season, especially for elderly individuals often at higher risk for contracting the virus, Markley said the campaign will have a positive impact on the seniors.

“Any Christmas is a special time, but probably with COVID and given the fact that many of these folks are probably seeing less of their loved ones than they might otherwise have, I think that this whole thing makes it just a little more special for those folks.”

Markley said he hopes to expand the Christmas tree for next year as well as the number of names on it to provide even more gifts to those in need.

At the recent Pocono Friends of Scouting Dinner, Michael J. Frailey was honored with the 2019 Richard “Dick” Seip Distinguished Citizen Award. “Scouting was an important part of my upbringing and training, as were my family, church, and sports. In many ways no matter what the activity, the ‘rules’ were the same:respect for others, fair play, striving to grow and learn more, and serving others,” stated Frailey during his acceptance speech.

Frailey is the owner and CEO of Frailey Insurance and Financial Services, insurance and financial experts for more than three quarters of a century, located in Stroudsburg, PA. He uses these traits in his everyday operations. Dr. John Brinker, Friends of Scouting dinner chairman, had the privilege of presenting the award. Frailey’s family, friends and team members were also in attendance as he graciously accepted the well-deserved award.

Certified Long Term Care (CLTC) Certification Awarded, May 2016

Yvonne L. Reitemeyer

(Stroudsburg) Yvonne L. Reitemeyer of Frailey Insurance and Financial Services, has earned a professional certification in the field of long-term care, Certified in Long Term Care (CLTC). The program is independent of the insurance industry and focuses on providing financial professionals the tools they need to meet their client’s long-term care needs.

All graduates complete a rigorous multidisciplinary course that focuses on the profession of long-term care planning. This program is recognized by state regulators, through the granting of continuing education credits, as having provided essential information necessary to the appropriate sale of long-term care insurance.

“Frailey Insurance and Financial Services is very active in our community. We treat our neighbors like family and strive to meet their many needs,” Reitemeyer said. “Many of our members have experienced the devastating effects chronic illness and worse, loss of a loved one, has had on their families. Few of these families can afford these costs. Long-term care insurance may be the solution. I am committed to provide the information members need to make the right decisions.”

Reitemeyer continues to say, “Long-term care insurance is a complex product. It offers many forms of protection and pricing structures. As a CLTC professional, I can help by knowing the right questions to ask. My goal, like all professionals, is to help them solve their needs.”
