2nd Tuesday of the Month
6:30 – 8:00 pm

Meeting Location & Agendas:

Monthly in-person meetings cancelled until it’s safe to meet again. The Covid-19 virus seems to be hitting our community very hard.  Please stay safe and be sure to follow all of the guidelines. 

Although we have not been meeting in person, we have been working on a project for you for 2021.  We started a non-profit company with a new physical space for you to gather for meetings, fitness and resources.  It will be The Amputee Center! We hope it will be complete in early spring.  

We are moving our Parkersburg office to the plaza near the toll bridge.  We had extra space and decided to turn the back area into the Amputee Center.  Watch for details!  Hopefully by the time we can meet again in person, the space will be done and our 501c3 paperwork complete.

Virtual Meetings:  I will post any virtual meeting links on the Prosthetic Users Group Facebook page as I receive them:  https://www.facebook.com/groups/ProstheticUsersGroup/

About our Monthly Meetings:

We welcome you to join us in the evening for our monthly get together.  If you have never been here with the group, it’s a relaxing evening.  We gather around the table in our kitchen area.  Sometimes we are treated with great food or snacks depending on what everyone brings.  Do not feel obligated to bring anything, but if you do, we will be sure to enjoy it.  There is no pressure to chat – you are welcome to just come and listen.  It’s a great way to meet new friends, and learn something new.  Usually someone has had a similar experience and can share tips on how to manage.  Also – if you have any technical questions for Mark, he will be there.  Please invite your spouse, friend, helper or anyone else you know with limb loss.  You do not have to be our patient, and don’t be fooled by the name.  All people with limb loss are invited, even if you do not wear a prostheses.

Thanks for all you do to help each other in the limb loss community.

 

It’s also time for a new Gold Medal Winner! If you have met one of your goals, let us know at Tuesday’s meeting and Roger will pass on the gold medal!
