March support group events
Evening Socials – taking a break
We’ve been meeting at Jason’s Deli in Fair Lakes in the evening on the 1st & 3rd Wednesday each month but with the unpredictable weather and low turn-out we’re going to take a break and start up again in April when it’s warmer.
In the meantime, you can join us for . . .
Mall walking & coffee – every Friday at 10:30 am
At: Corner Bakery at Fair Oaks Mall
The idea is that you can walk before or after joining the group for coffee and a chat with your support group friends at Corner Bakery at 10:30 am. If you’re really feeling enthusiastic you can walk before AND after! No need to RSVP, but if you do go, could you please drop me a line at email@example.com and let me know you attended?
FYI – it’s .75 of a mile to walk around on one level, inside of the mall, including all the nooks and crannies.
Support group meeting – Saturday, March 22, 10:00 am – 12 noon
At: Sunrise at Fair Oaks, 3rd floor 3750 Joseph Siewick Dr, Fairfax VA 22033
Valerie Parker, Director of Community Relations, Sunrise at Fair Oaks will provide a yummy Sunrise brunch followed by a State of the Sunrise presentation, and answer questions about life in an assisted living community.
No need to bring refreshments this month – thank you, Valerie!
