AARP needs aides
The American Association of Retired Persons is seeking volunteers to assist in its program to provide free personal income tax counseling and tax form preparation to low- and moderate-income taxpayers age 60 and over.
Last year,more than 80,000 volunteers participated in the program throughout the nation. President Bush, in a letter of June I, 1990, recognized this assistance and congratulated the AARP for its invaluable assistance to senior citizens who may be unable to prepare their own returns and who cannot afford to pay for assistance
Income tax time can be an intimidating experience. Assistance to the elderly, the disabled and non-English speaking citizens can be a true blessing.
Anyone who would like to be trained as a Tax Aide is asked to call Jim Mcllvaine at 629-1448 or Les Thome at 629-4711.
Training classes for counselors will begin in January. Upon completion of the course, counselors will be asked to volunteer a minimum of 40 hours.
Participating in the program will be a satisfying experience benefitting many elderly citizens of this community, said Thorn.

Hermann sons conducting family membership drive
A year-long “IOO Percent Family Membership Campaign” will be conducted from Jan. I to Dec. 31, 1991, by the 161 lodges in the 80,000-member Order of the Sons of Hermann in Texas, said Leroy Muehlstein of San Antonio, grand president of U«e order.
The lodges arc located in 144 cities and towns across the state, including New Braunfels.
The theme of the 12-month drive
will stress the fact the order is a fraternal benefit society for the entire family. the grand president pointed out.

The grand lodge, headquarters for
the fraternal benefit society, was founded in San Antonio March 27, 1890;- and the order last year celebrated the 100th anniversary of this event. Originally pan of a national society organized in New York in 1840, Hermann Sons in Texas became autonomous in 1921.
The not-for-profit society in Texas owns and operates a retirement home for its aged members and a youth
summer camp, both at Comfort, and sponsors tuition-free schools of dance for its junior members in 44 communities. Local lodges are known for thcii social and benevolent activities. As required by law, the fraternal bencfii society also provides life insurance for its adult and junior members.
