It is with a heavy heart that we leave the year 2016 behind, but not forgotten are the friends and loved ones we lost.
We had a successful Annual Meeting on January 11th at Jackie Zimmer’s home with a potluck salad luncheon to follow. Sarah Messmer from Hopice spoke to us on transitioning. What this covers is how you can lead a healthier and productive life. They offer two different support groups; a great ‘Resource Guide’ which lists almost any service you may require and even a brochure about communicating with someone with dementia. And much, much more. If you have any questions as to who to call for something or just want to know all that is available at no cost, call Hospice at (928-453-2111) and ask to speak to a Transitions Coordinator.
Coming up in two weeks is the State Conference at the Phoenix Country Club. This is an election year, so we will be voting on the new slate and installing the new board. We have one member of Ocotillo Chapter who has thrown her name in the hat for State Registrar.
Here’s to a healthy, happy 2017. And as the old Irish toast goes:
“May the saddest day of your future be no worse
than the happiest day of your past.”
