Dear Editor, 

The Red Horse Parkinson Alliance and M&M Parkinson Support Group want to express our most sincere thanks to the many businesses and volunteers that made our educational event “Neuroscientific Approach to Brain Health and Vitality,” a great success.

We filled the room, with standing room only and became aware of the need for this type of education.

That created a second event to further that knowledge. Printed information for each event was made available as well as coffee, muffins.

Parkinson Disease is a very complicated disease as it is controlled by the brain and for a long time brain health was not addressed. We are pleased to be able to bring this important information to anyone interested.

Soon we will present another educational event to further assist with Parkinson Disease and its side issues.

Our educator was Dacy Reimer, APNP, MSN, CCRC and she has many years of experience with Parkinson’s Disease.

Thanks to Schloegel’s for sharing their bay room, the staff was great and coffee, muffins perfect. Penny’s Plants and Pots were refreshing, each table had some to add to the issue of using herbs to create a more appealing menu. Thanks, Penny. Everyone loved them.

A special thanks to the Harbor’s Community Retirement Building, Kathy Scoggins and her staff made sure all information was printed and ready to go. To the volunteers, thanks for your hard work, much appreciated. Most of all a warm thank you to the people attending, it was heartwarming to see how many people are interested and willing to take time to be informed. Thanks to everyone for this great success and we look forward to more of these events in the near future.

 

Pat Ihler, president
