Hello Fair Oaks Folks! Our Feb. PD support group meeting will be held at the Sunrise Senior Living at Fair Oaks on Joseph Siewick Dr. in Fairfax, but we will meet in the Craft room for the next few months, while renovations are being done on the 3rd floor.The Craft room is located just below the library on the 2nd floor; there will be a sign on the doors. It is a comfortable room and even has a small kitchen at one end.
We will have the soup and sandwich pot luck that we had to postpone in Jan. Donna will bring a soup (butternut squash) that can be sipped or spooned from a cup. We’re asking attendees to bring a sandwich that can be sliced to share on a platter. Donna will supply plates, soup cups, and plastic tableware. Chips, fruit or cookies are also welcome. We will talk among ourselves and catch up with news. (A planned boxing demonstration had to be postponed due to space limitations.)
Looking ahead for next month, the annual PFNCA Symposium is on March 24th, (the 4th Saturday) so we need to discuss if we want to meet on another date, or have both options available. Donna, our wonderful facilitator, will be attending the Symposium and it’s likely that many other group members will also.
