February 2013 Meeting

There was no official speaker at this meeting but we had the company of Jill Gorrie to give us further details of her planned walk, proposed for April this year. (See below)

Gregg Faulkner also addressed the meeting, providing some handy tips for Parkinsons sufferers on dealing with medications and other "Parko" issues whilst travelling overseas.

Gregg made use of the group's new data projector and screen to illustrate his talk. This equipment is available for all speakers to our group and will help to make our regular meetings even more enjoyable.

Gwen Thompson’s daughter, Jill Gorrie, is planning a fund raising walk with several friends, from Laurieton to Port Macquarie in April. The monies raised from this walk are intended specifically for our trust fund to help finance a Parkinsons nurse for this area.

Jill and her fellow walkers are seeking sponsors for the event and we are hoping to have as many members of our Support Group as possible present to welcome the walkers once they have reached their goal.
