Meeting reminder, drop-in lunch, upcoming events

Hi Everyone,

Hopefully you’re all keeping cool in this end-of-summer heat!

MONTHLY MEETING

Our monthly meeting will be this Saturday, August 22, at 10:00 on the third floor of the Sunrise at Fair Oaks.  We will have a regular meeting, splitting into two groups:  people who have PD and care partners.  The speaker we hoped to have was unavailable due to travel. If you’re in town, come join us for conversation and camaraderie.

DROP-IN LUNCH MEETINGS, HOW TO PARTICIPATE

It’s easy to participate; you just have to show up at the Silver Diner on Fair Lakes Parkway by 11:30 am on the first or third Wednesday of each month. Someone from the Fair Oaks group will always be there, and the conversation is always good. So is the food from the big menu. Typically we leave at about 1:00 pm, fuller and happier than when we arrived. So, come on down, you’re invited. For lookup or calling, our Silver Diner is at 12251 Fair Lakes Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22033, phone 703-359-5999.
