We do not have a scheduled speaker this month, so we can catch up and share news within the group.
We are in for a special treat at our April 27th meeting!
In honor of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, Valerie Parker and her staff at Sunrise Senior Living at Fair Oaks will provide us with a delicious and sumptuous brunch as they have in previous years.
Join us for conversation, companionship and a festive brunch specially prepared for us! This is our chance to thank the staff at Sunrise for the space they provide us with for our meetings and their gracious hospitality.
All people living with PD and their care partners are welcome.
