January 2018 Inside Out

Isn't the weather nasty around here? I hope you are all able to hunker down and keep warm. We haven't had much snow so far so we're sure to get dumped on one of these days. Should we have inclement weather don't forget the instructions on Page 6 to check whether our meetings are cancelled or not. We don't usually cancel for cold weather, but I sure worry when we get a lot of snow. I don't want anyone to get stuck in the evening.

I hope you got your Ostomy Canada magazine just before Christmas. It has a lot of great reading. There is an article with info on FOWC (the non-profit group that collects unused ostomy supplies). You may be interested in reading the well-written articles "The End of an Era" and "OCS Youth Camp". If you didn't receive your magazine contact Rosemary Gaffray at 1-204-367-8031. If you don't have a long-distance telephone plan just give me a call.

I like to bring your attention to the Regina Educational Seminar in May (Page 12). I am planning to go. Would any of you be interested in going with me? If there is enough interest, we could look at finding transportation. Let me know.

Visitor training is in the works now for the evening of Friday, April 13th. We can never have too many trained visitors. Bonnie Dyson or I would love to hear from you if you're interested in taking the training.

Again, there are five Wednesday's this month. See you on the FOURTH Wednesday, January 24th.

Stay warm!
