MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT - SEPTEMBER 2020Category:
COVID19 or not, my birthday comes every year, same date, same time, and it is worth celebrating. In my world, one’s birthday is the most important day of the year. Because it is COVID-19 time LET’S virtually CELEBRATE in all but name. You can go to JoRosenWorld.com and leave your sentiments, and you will even have an opportunity to donate directly to PRO in my honor. I will thank you, but the thousands of people we help will thank you more. My gift will be seeing your participation. This is the 7th year of ROSES FOR ROSEN. PRO’s definition of Roses are donations. Seven is a lucky number, I can feel it!!
PRO lost a Good Friend, a wonderful supporter, an Honorary Board Member and an international songwriter, singer, musician, actor and entertainer TRINI LOPEZ. An otherwise healthy man, COVID 19 complicated it. To carry on his legacy you can find him on our Memorial Wall
The support groups re-engage this month. All virtual. Check out the calendar and you will find three (3) Partners In Care meetings- formerly known as Caregiver Only meetings – same concept, different name – we have three (3) Round Table Meetings meetings where People with Parkinson’s, their family members and our Wellness Village Professionals come to chat; and finally we have two (2) Village Meetings, where professionals are invited to address the audience to inform them of something specific that is valuable to people affected by Parkinson’s. This meeting includes Q & A.
