No meeting in October
Our 2 options for meeting, the Kaye Clinic and Wellspring, still have COVID restrictions in place. The Kaye Clinic is not allowing gatherings at their facility. Wellspring requires masking which we can work with. However they have COVID social distancing in place which reduces the capacity of the meeting room to 22 attendees. This puts us in an awkward position of potentially turning members away if more than 22 members attend. Consequently we will not hold a general meeting in October.
Dr. Alex Tamm has tentatively agreed to present at our November meeting. We will proceed with this meeting if it means renting a venue elsewhere.
Sadly I learned today that Gary Firth passed away on Thursday Sept.29th with his family by his side. Members will remember Gary as a presenter at one of the meetings on his clinical trial. Gary was also one of the originals on the True North Clinical exercise trial. A celebration of Life will be held at the Sturgeon Golf and Country Club Friday afternoon Oct 7.
Take time to explore our new website. www.pepss.ca. I think you will be impressed.
If you are aware of an acquaintance, friend or family member that is living with PC, encourage them to reach out and chat with a member that has received treatment. A trouble shared is a trouble halved.
