January 2017 Inside Out

Welcome to 2017!

As our meetings start up for the New Year, the Board is looking at booking our Christmas Lunch once again. From the few pictures shown in this issue and comments from those who come out, I can assure you that we have a really, really, great time. There are games, door prizes, silent auction, amazing entertainment, ambience, free parking, easy and central access, socializing and great food. Get out your calendars and mark Sunday, Dec. 3, 2017 on your calendars now!

It is our hope to highlight some of the accomplishments of our members in future issues. This gives us the opportunity to learn more about our people and their 'other' lives beyond their illnesses. It is no surprise that we know each other by our surgeries, challenges and successes but the person behind our health story is often overlooked. We hope that these 'stories' will expand our understanding and caring for each other. Do you have someone that you would like to see highlighted? Just drop me a line and I will work on it. I know there are wonderful stories just waiting to be told.

The WOA Executive met with ConvaTec's representative, WHRA Logistics and the ETs to talk about the new HealthPRO contract. January's meeting will give you a chance to ask questions and be informed. See you then.
