IRS representative Cassel Pulliam visits AARP
at the Brooke County Senior Center to complete a review.
His services and assistance with tax questions were greatly
appreciated while he was there. Pictured above Cassel
is reviewing RSVP volunteer Sonny Crossley. Thank you for
assisting the RSVP. The AARP Tax assistance is
currently scheduled through April 9, 2013. Bill Lantz,
District 1 Coordinator is working to add a second day of
service starting in March. Please be patient if trying
to call 304.527.3410. We are very busy and have started a
waiting list for the new days to be scheduled.
A little more about William Lantz:
(Bill) started with RSVP on January 4, 2002, as a volunteer
instructed under George Weigel serving 1,198 hours as AARP
Tax Assistant. George recently retired his position as
District Coordinator and recommended Bill as his
replacement. Bill accepted the position and attended
training in Morgantown under Tom Ludwig, Betty Steen, Linda
French, and Aaron Ballinger. Bill then instructed his team
of three new volunteers, Elwood Beihl, Jr., Beckey Weigand,
George Dragonir, and updated his right hand man Sonny
Crossley serving approximately 100 hours. Bill was
very instrumental in the recruitment of the three new
volunteers who now assist him. Bill was also crucial
with implementation of the networking of computers and
efiling of taxes. Good job Bill, we appreciate your
hard work and dedication in keeping the AARP Tax Assistance
program available to residents of Brooke and Hancock
Bill has also assisted 8 hours with City of Follansbee
beautification while maintaining his own garden. He
has assisted with 2 hours of service transporting at the
Brooke County Fair and assisting 43 hours serving in
fundraising events for Brooke County Senior Center and
Brooke Hancock Ohio Marshall RSVP.
Bill’s total 1,351 hours of service has added to his
community $28,980 the past eleven years serving directly at
least 2,000 community members. Again, thank you for
all you do, we appreciate your service.
