Greetings YEI members 

In this issue we look at How Grandmas remedies can save you money.    We invite you to  look at CapeNature’s 30% discount for seniors – pensioner discounts don’t get much better than this!  Here’s a fascinating article about the facts about Medicinal cannabis brought to you by Clicks and a must-read article – Bag more benefits for you the SA senior

We also want to welcome Dolphin Beach Hotel, Montagu Springs and de Bakke Santos who are back with more great Pensioner Specials for you.

It has come to our attention that many YEI members are not receiving their YEI newsletters.  This could be due to loadshedding or the newsletters going to your junk mail.  Please check your junk mail.  If you are not regularly receiving newsletters, do let us know.
