Meeting Location & Agendas:

Happy New Year Everyone!  We are happy to be starting a new year with you.  New hopes for the future – new goals – new friends.  We hope you can make it to our January meeting.  We decided to pull the meetings back to our home location at our Miller Prosthetics Office.  For the past few months, we have held our meetings at Belpre Landings, and were happy for their hospitality.  We may meet there again, but for now, we will once again host the meetings at our Belpre, Ohio office.  Remember to check back on this page every month to confirm the location.  The date and time will always be the same.

Thanks to Steve & Martha Lamp who hosted our December meeting!  

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.

January Meeting will be Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at 6:30 at Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics, 23354 Richmiller Ln, Belpre, OH 45714

February Meeting will be Tuesday, February 11, 2020 at 6:30 at Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics, 23354 Richmiller Ln, Belpre, OH 45714          

 

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

Congratulations to this month’s Gold Medal Winner! Roger is up and walking again. He showed off a pretty cool device that he got online to help him get going again. It’s like a rolling walker that goes behind you and you can belt into it. It allows for hands-free assistance. Thanks for demonstrating it at our last meeting Roger!

Congrats Roger on this month’s gold medal winner! Reached his goal of walking! woo hoo!!
Rogers demonstrates his new LifeGlider!
