I had breakfast this morning with a longtime friend with whom I had worked as a volunteer in many community, citizen, and education organizations for many, many years. My friend, who is 15 years my senior, is still very active in many organizations. Amongst the many organizations with which he is involved, three stand out.
Those particular three organizations are the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare, the Alliance for Retired Americans, and a fairly new organization called The Alliance of Informed Citizens of Northwest Ohio.
I found web sites for the first two but not the third.
Take a look at the websites:
National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare
Alliance for Retired Americans
Although I did not find a web site for The Alliance of Informed Citizens of Northwest Ohio, I did find this announcement on the community events page of 13abc.com from a few months ago:

From what I learned today, it seems as though The Alliance of Informed Citizens of Northwest Ohio may indeed be an organization deserving of support and worthwhile with which to become involved.
