Mtg Notes for Mt. Airy Meeting 8/13
Our meeting of 8/13 was a very open and sharing experience. Three of our Heroes, Beverly, Estelle and Beth were present plus two new Heroes, Tahira and Belinda were in attendance. Belinda contacted me through the website after finding our information in the PCA resource section, we communicated by email and she came in to become part of Heroes. Welcome, Belinda and Tahira!!!! Tahira was put in touch with me through Sr. Helpers and we've developed a friendship. She came in, though she was still fasting for Ramadan, and participated, offering suggestions and observations throughout the meeting. Everyone offered support to one another, listening and offering suggestions to help in difficult situations. This is what the group is all about….helping each other!!!!
We had Virginia Harr of the Lutheran Settlement House in Kensington as a presenter of what her organization offers to the caregivers in our area. She was very impressed with our interaction and was very happy to have been a part of the group. She did get a response from one of our members regarding more information.
We also had Idalia Clark & LaBrita Collins of Bankers Trust Insurance as presenters to give us financial planning suggestions to insure we’re prepared for the future. They are two very intelligent and informative young ladies who will help you get your ducks in order for the future.
My thanks to Virginia, Idalia and Labrita for attending our group and offering some information that can useful in the future.
