Message from the President - October 2021Category: Message From The President
As the leaves change colors and the temperatures fall to meet the season, PRO is busy carrying out its fall and winter plans. It seems spooky how fast this year sped by that we would be at Halloween already. Watch out for life’s ghosts and goblins, keep yourself healthy, safe and happy.
We’re looking for more employees that are qualified, passionate, compassionate, honest, in one case, credentialed, and all with a high work ethic. The job descriptions for the following professionals are on our website: Wellness Village Director, IT/Communications Director, and Support Group Coordinator. If you know someone that lives in or wants to live in the Palm Springs area that is desirous of working in the non-profit sector, making a difference in the Parkinson’s world, and has a team spirit have them submit their cover letter and resume. These jobs are currently available.
Our six new specialty support groups are growing wonderfully, and we have six more anticipated before the end of the year. We are enjoying seeing more dear friends and new friends at the Support Group Meetings... Zooming right along. Just an FYI, because of the new COVID variants, PRO will not be putting the PRO community of already compromised individuals at risk by resuming personal support group meetings. If you have participated in our support group meetings, please share your experience with someone you know, a friend, neighbor, or the friend of a relative. You never know how your invitation may impact another life and how priceless that connection might become. Take a look at the Calendar on the back page and note the meetings that are going on this month.
Reading within remains PROvocative and educational, to be sure.
We lost a dear friend this past month, you’ve read his poetry in the Newsletters over the years.
We say a kind and loving farewell to Dave Verdery
