It’s June and I’m back from time away. I had a wonderful trip to Italy and the food is still fantastic, the countryside gorgeous and the people still friendly.
I came back to our Holistic Health Fair which was a huge success and we thank Professor Eques and her nurses for all their hard work. We are talking about planning another Fair in the Fall.
There is a lot going on here at Stein. We celebrated our wonderful Volunteers on May 21 with a breakfast. As we always say, we couldn’t run Stein without you! Thank you for all the work you do.
The Epiphany Library is holding their Book Club here at Stein while their space is getting renovated and we welcome them to Stein.
We have just gotten a new phone system and we’re working out the glitches, so if you have had trouble reaching us, we apologize. Since the new system works with our computer network, we needed more bandwidth, so it should be fine now.
We are planning some important new programs starting soon. Our Nutritionist, Denise Sabal and Dr. Ira Laufer, an Endocrinologist and Diabetes expert are planning a Diabetes Support Group. This will allow seniors with Diabetes to get expert advice on medical and nutritional issues affecting your condition. The date and time to be announced shortly.
And finally, just a reminder to attend and support the classes and groups that bring you to Stein since your support is the key to continuing these activities. Your support is also vastly important for our meal program, both in numbers and contribution. This year, our contributions were less than are expected, so your help is needed to meet our levels. If you can, please contribute to the cost of lunches served at Stein. Thank you for all you do.
Jane Barry, Executive Director
