Blog Entry #13 (November 1, 2016)

Hello everyone. Here are this month's meeting times & dates. This month we are celebrating Obesity Awareness week from 10/31/16- 11/4/16, & will have an information table in the lobby of the main hospital. Please come by to see us!

Some thoughts as the holidays approach… Take time to be merry with your loved ones & enjoy the little moments. While food is often the focus of a specific gathering, we challenge you to find new & different opportunities. Focus on playing games, making crafts, taking a hike to collect treasures, or just watching your favorite holiday movie together. And… when you do enjoy your favorite family dish (in moderation), savor it!!!
