The South Lake Tahoe Senior Center, 3050 Lake Tahoe Blvd., will conduct its third annual Ice Cream Social and Bake Sale Saturday from 12:30 to 3 p.m.
People may choose from four flavors of ice cream, served with toppings of their choice. In addition, the seniors will have several tables where homemade jams, jellies, cookies, salsa and craft items will be offered.
Starting at 1 p.m. sharp, as a special feature of this year’s social, “Entertainment Plus” will present the Tahoe Jugglers for everyone’s entertainment. This duo of performers has been entertaining audiences in and around the Lake Tahoe area for three years.
At 1:30 p.m., Dave Leather, well- known cowboy singer and guitarist, will perform.
The Ice Cream Social raises money for Senior Center programs assisting elderly in the community. The center is especially active in providing van service for seniors who can no longer drive, taking them to the doctor, hospital visits and grocery shopping. Attendance at the social will help in the efforts to assist the senior of the community in these and other programs.
Social Security info available
The Work Incentives Education Project provides free counseling to recipients of Social Security Disability Insurance and SSI regarding the impact of employment on their continued receipt of these benefits and the accompanying Medicare and Medi-Cal.
WIEP counselors also can explain what the Ticket to Work program is all about. The Ticket to Work is a new initiative by Social Security which has reached California and is designed to expand the options available for obtaining vocational rehabilitation services.
Recent improvements to Social Security’s work rules now make employment a more attractive option for many receiving disability benefits. However, recipients of SSDI/SSI are often reluctant to return to work for fear of losing their benefits and health care. WIEP counselors can help individuals identify and use those work rules that best match their circumstances, whether the goal is to merely test one’s ability to work or to achieve a greater level of self-sufficiency.
To find out more about WIEP and the Social Security work incentives call 1-800-665-6188.
