Reminder: Fair Oaks Parkinson’s Support Group Meeting Saturday December 14

Happy HolidaysWe will meet early this month, on the 2nd Saturday in December and hope you can join us.

At: Sunrise at Fair Oaks
3750 Joseph Siewick Dr.
Fairfax, VA 22033

We will meet in the Bistro on the 3rd floor this month. Members can bring cookies or a treat to share if they wish, but we will wait until after the New Year to plan a pot luck (when more people are available to attend)

I think it would be fun idea to share a favorite holiday memory or tradition with others at the meeting this month.

Safe travels to those going out of town and Happy Holidays and New Years to all.
