Informed Citizens Of Northwest Ohio

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 from a few months ago:

Thursday, March 13
The Alliance of Informed Citizens of Northwest Ohio Host Symposium ~ (Toledo) 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Erie Street Market, Civic Center Promenade, 237 Erie Street. The Ohio Treasure Richard Cordray and Lloyd Early of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office will address the retirees and seniors from various organizations of Northwest Ohio. The presentations will include subjects of interest to our elder population,” Seniors and Money” and “Medicare Fraud”. After the presentation, the staff of each will present a workshop to help our seniors and retireees better understand these important areas. Lucas County Sheriff Jim Telb, Lucas County Prosecutor Julia Bates, The Ohio Alliance for Retired Americans, the National Committee for the Preservation of Social Security and Medicare are supporting the gathering. Other speakers are Dr. Johnathon Ross of St. Vincent Medical Center and Semanthie Brooks of the Benjamin Rose Institute, Cleveland, Ohio. Info: 419.536.2536

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.

    The Ohio Alliance for Retired Americans has recently launch a web site . Check us out. The OARA is proud to be working with the Alliance of Informed Citizens to provide a forum where citizens, service providers and elected leaders can dialogue. The Ohio Alliance for Retired Americans is in the business of promoting self advocacy as we age. See you on the Web.

    Thanks, Norm. I had previously checked out OARA. The reason I had not linked to it in my entry is because I linked to ARA and from there Ohioans can go on over to OARA.
    Sam has given me all the background information on Alliance of Informed Citizens and has informed me of all the key players, stakeholders, and their roles, including the Plumbers and Steamfitters.


  3. I saw that some one had recently looked at this blog entry. Upon further examination, I discovered that the two embedded links within the blog entry were broken. That probably happened during the transfer of blog entries to this new domain when Roland’s Ramblings was forced to find a new home because the previous domain host closed down.
    None-the-less, as is the case whenever I find such things, I have made the necessary repairs to reactivate the embedded links.
    In addition, I have also found two other web pages concerning The Alliance of Informed Citizens of Northwest Ohio. Take a look at:
