Peripatetic Pete, Looking for a Volunteer

Greetings Parkinspeople and those who love them, I'm looking for a volunteer to host our next two support group meetings as I will be away visiting family far, far from Alaska. If you can attend the meetings, greet newcomers and help foster a discussion about Parkinson's Disease, this is the volunteer opportunity you have been waiting for. Well wait no longer! Take that first step into the Parkinson's limelight! To quote that well-known philospher Dr. Ferris Bueller "Life moves pretty fast you don't host a Parkinson's support group meeting, you could miss it." So who wants this once-in-a-lifetime chance? Please contact me if it's you. Bueller?... Bueller?....

​In other news the  PD and speech group led by our intrepid  Ann Ver Hoef  will meet soon. here is Anne's message about that: ​

I hope this finds you all well.  The summer is flying by, as usual.  Never enough time to get outdoors….but I am heading out for a backpack trip in the Wind River Range in WY and be gone Aug 2-12

We have our next PD Communication Group on Monday, 8/13/2018 from 3:30-5:00.
We will meet in the Ivy Room, downstairs on the First Floor at AK Regional Hospital.  This is in the downstairs of the regular hospital building.  If you park in the “back” of the building, and come in the tall atrium entrance, you head to the left down the hallway and there are the Ivy rooms.

Be prepared to share some of your summer experiences! WOOOHOOOO!

And this just in... Alan Alda says he was diagnosed with PD three and a half years ago, and that he is doing fine.
Pete out (way out!)
