Meeting Location & Agenda:

** JUNE MEETING EXCEPTION – WILL BE ON WEDNESDAY, JUNE 13, 2018!**

Note, in lieu of the usual meeting on the second Tuesday for JUNE, plan to join us on a trip to the kids camp in Clarksville, Ohio.   WEDNESDAY June 13, 2018 at 3:00 pm

Plan to meet at Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics, 2354 Richmiller Lane, Belpre, Ohio at 3:00.  We will caravan over to Clarksville, Ohio to help chaperone a dance for the kids at the Paddy Rossbach Amputee Kids Camp.  It is the week long kids camp for children with limb loss 10-17 years old.

This camp is hosted by Amputee Coalition and they have over 125 kids this year attending camp. Amputee Coalition is excited about having members from three Amputee Support Groups in Ohio (Amps4ohio, ACTION support group & us) come and show them how well we are doing as “grown-up” amputees and please feel free to bring a friend or family member if you wish.

The kids are having a Dance that evening and we will help chaperoning.  The dance starts around 6 pm.

We also will be taking snacks for the kids ( which they tend to run out of towards the end of the week) so this will be very helpful ! Because of some kids allergies the snacks have to be store bought with ingredients on the labels. We will be taking things like granola bars, baked chips, cases of water etc. plus buying some sugar free and gluten free items for those with allergies to make sure everyone is covered in the snacks we take. Rather than have everyone that’s coming bring something Juanita from Amps4Ohio will buy the food and drinks and bring it in her van. If you would like to help donate towards the cost of you can click here to the donation link.

If you plan to go, you will need to let me know.  I will then give you directions and more details and send you a release form that will need to be filled out and signed in order to attend. Please email them back to me filled out and signed so I can hand them in to the coordinator of the event in one folder.

Kids will be attending from all over the US, we are lucky this is basically in our back yard! This is going to be a lot fun and a great chance for our group to give back to the limb loss community. If you are free that day please consider attending this awesome event! Any questions please call or email Nancy at 740-525-8124 or nancymiller@millerpo.com

Our July meeting will be Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at 6:30 at Miller Prosthetics & Orthotics at 2354 Richmiller Lane, Belpre, Ohio 45714,
