Meetings & Events
 Andy has offered to collect clothes that members bring to the meeting on Monday March 25 and take them to the Clothes Cabin.
This is a very worthwhile organization and worthy of our support.
Men's clothing is in great need but all clothing will be appreciated.
Please dig into your closets and take this opportunity to rid yourself of "old" clothes AND help others in our community.
Hope to see everyone with at least one piece of clothing to donate next Monday!
Join us at the Whirlwind Golf Course on April 5.  Just a reminder - this will be a best ball scramble with a shotgun start at 1:30 pm

 March 18, 2019 - Dr Daniel Nightengale, co-founder and director of Dementia Therapy Specialists  regaled us with some humor (he is a stand-up comedian) that led into a serious discussion of dementia.  Dr Dan has found that comedy is a great tool for helping people with dementia. He said that dementia is beginning to occur much earlier in today's western population and he believes that a major contributor is the increasing consumption of sugar in our diets. He also explained the difference between alzheimers and vascular dementia and how they must be treated differently.  Much discussion ensued and the members truly enjoyed his presentation.

 March 11, 2019 - Gabby Gail (column ID) writes a regular "wisdom" column that is carried by a dozen papers in the Western USA. She explained that her wisdom comes from: being the youngest of 12; being an RN; raising 6 children; working for many years at Friendship Village; and teaching at the Autism Academy. A friend suggested she write a column dispensing wisdom to those over 50. She gave us several of her pearls of wisdom and read a few letters and her responses. Members appreciated her wisdom and humor and gave her a resounding round of applause.  Thank you Gayle.
