Healthy & Independent Living
The Bergner Ministry of Emmanuel Episcopal Church
Friday, March 1, 2019
The next meeting of Healthy and Independent Living (HAIL) will be at 11:00 a.m. on Friday March 1st in the Parish Hall of Emmanuel Episcopal Church in Middleburg. The topic will be detecting and protecting yourself against banking frauds, scams and scammers. These people use deception, intimidation, and fear to get access to your personal information and steal your money and identity.
Karen DiFederico from BB&T will be our guest speaker. Her presentation will focus on how to recognize the red flags that signal a scam, how to protect yourself, and what do if, in spite of all your best efforts, you become a victim. There will be time for Q&A after Karen’s presentation. All are invited to stay for lunch and fellowship.
Karen is an Assistant Vice President and Market Leader with BB&T. She has managed the Middleburg office since January 2017 and has been with BB&T for seven years. Karen served in the Marine Corps for two years as an Arabic Linguist and graduated from Hood College with a degree in History and Middle Eastern Studies. She lives in Centreville with her husband, two children, and two spoiled dogs.
There is no cost for the presentation or lunch. All are welcome; bring a friend!
HAIL is a ministry of Emmanuel Church that is open to all. The goal of HAIL is to foster skills and provide information that help people of all ages maintain a healthy life and live independently. This ministry was inspired by members of the Bergner/Maggiano family, especially Andy and Audrey Bergner and Laurie Maggiano.
