Hello Fair Oaks Folks!
We had a great response to the Dance for PD Class @ George Mason University, on Saturday Feb.25th. We have 18 people attending, and can look forward to an exciting and fun afternoon. I understand the class is now full, but there is a wait list in case of cancellations. Below is specific information about time and place, parking, etc.
We will also have a regular support group meeting at the Sun Rise on Sat Feb 25th, for those not going to the Dance for PD event. Sonia Gow graciously offered to lead the meeting, as Donna will be at George Mason that morning. Sonia always has helpful information to share and keeps us moving. Many thanks to Sonia for all she does for our PD community.
We will come back together on March 25th, for a presentation by Karl and Angela Robb. His second book, Dealing and Healing with Parkinson’s Disease and Other Health Conditions, was released in Nov. 2016. It is a wonderful workbook, full of exercises to motivate and encourage us to live well with PD. Angela and Karl have been active advocates for the PD community for over 30 years and have much to share with us.
