Important Precaution Reminders:
– Keep social distancing – from friends, family, children, grandchildren. This applies even after we have tested negative and/or are out of quarantine. Please be sure not to congregate and be sure to stay further than 6 feet from others when you are outdoors.
– We all wish to help others and be supportive. This is best accomplished by telephone or computer communication. If we do not protect ourselves, we are automatically endangering others.
– We need to refrain from inviting family or guests for meals, for chats, despite that this goes against our instincts and tradition.
– ALL shopping in stores involves possible exposure. Best to shop online. If absolutely necessary to visit a store, time visits when shopping density is lowest. Small stores which have had less traffic are preferable to larger stores.
______________________________________________
 
End of Year Stock Payments. Please consider gifting appreciated securities to YINR as payment for outstanding balances or as a new contribution.  Donating shares of stock or mutual funds that have appreciated in value since their purchase affords you a charitable income tax deduction equal to the fair market value of the securities at the time of donation and avoids the capital gains tax that would be incurred on a sale of these securities. Please contact the office when you are donating stock to identify yourself, the stock listing symbol, and the estimated value. Any questions, please click here to contact the office.
