Update: Dance for PD class / support group meeting this Saturday, Feb 25

Hello Fair Oaks Folks!

Dance for PD class
We had a great response to the Dance for PD class at 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. If you’re unable to attend, please call Dance for PD at 1-800-957-1046 ext. 1 and leave a message so that they can invite a waitlisted participant to join us. Below is specific information about time and place, parking, etc.

Support group meeting
We will also have a regular support group meeting at the Sunrise at Fair Oaks on Saturday, 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, and is planning on having two discussion groups – people with Parkinsons and carepartners.
