He explained the crime, how it is perpetrated and provided instructions on how each of us can take steps to protect our credit history and good name. He noted that Identity Theft is a rising crime in Susquehanna County.

At a subsequent meeting, Shirley Masters, decked out as Minnie Pearle, presented a Christmas reading from Grinders Switch, by Minnie Pearle, and exhibited her collection of Christmas collectibles.
