June Doings for People in Southcentral Alaska With an Interest in Parkinson's Disease

Turns out that when I sent out the initial version of this post,  I didn't know squat about what to expect this month. Well, that may be going a bit far. The telehealth conference will take place as I said, on the 9th of June, at 1:00. Alaska time. The topic  will be elder  law. Here is the lowdown:

Presentation Titled: Elder Law, Steps to Estate Planning and Long Term Care for everyone
and any health status. Speaker: Dick Sayre, Attorney at Law is a principal in the law firm Sayre and Sayre, PS in Spokane, Washington with a focus on Elder Law
Topic: Elder Law, Steps to Estate Planning and Long Term Care for everyone and any health status. Introduction to Durable Power of Attorney’s, Living Wills and much more. Please prepare for an 1 long presentation with a question and answer period (Specific legal questions will need to be addressed with your attorney or with Mr. Sayre at different time.)

For more information contact :  Meetings are free of cost and are also received in several communities over TeleHealth. The Parkinson's TeleHealth Program broadcasts live, interactive educational talks to a network of rural communities in the Northwest. On the SECOND Monday of each month, a guest speaker presents a topic geared toward the interests of Parkinson's families. The information is designed to help participants to improve their knowledge of Parkinson's disease and in turn their quality of life.
To attend the Alaska meeting, proceed with all deliberate speed to the Providence Hospital oncology wing on Piper St. ( Go to the second floor, walk down the lonnnnnnnng hall that stretches South from the cafe and look for room 2401 pretty much at the end of the hall on your right. )
So I did know squat about that. But the Parkinson's Support Group picnic has been moved to July. This means the meeting for the 21st June will be of the normal, everyday variety. Except I will be away because the band in which I play has a gig up in Gakona. There is no reason you should not meet without me. In fact I believe there is still much to be done in effecting my ouster as leader of the group. This will make a fine opportunity to fine-tune finishing touches on any plots for a coup d'etat. Or you could talk about the picnic, which is now set for the 19th  of July.
This year the picnic will be spearheaded by Bob and Carolyn Reinhart. (No relation to Django) You'll want to be there as Bob plans make Texas Style barbequed ribs! The place will be at my house, 9601 Elmore road (Directions to follow.) time will be 3:30. It's a potluck, we hope you will bring a salad, side dish or dessert. Bob and Carolyn would appreciate an RSVP to their phone, 345-3961 or by email to Please rsvp by July 17th. Big thanks to the two of them for shouldering this task.
Enjoy the Summer,
