Thanks to everyone who came to our first meeting of 2014! It was great catching up with members; ClaudDeen, Anne, Jim, Joyce & Amber and we were so happy to meet new member – Bud Orr welcome to the group!!! My mom and dad also came to lend their support – thanks for the yummy cookies and taking the group picture, Mom!!!
We did not have a speaker, we keep our first meeting of each year “just us” so we really get time to chat and share ideas.
Mo talked about news with BYM338 and clinical trials, and I talked about our fundraising goals for the group (click here for our campaign this year). We’ve also started a checking account to help with group expenses and to expand our support services. Excited about the possibilities!!!
We are scouting locations for our 2014 Picnic in the Park – our September 21st event to celebrate National Myositis Awareness Day. We found a park in Boulder that includes shelters and is free – let us know if you have any ideas or great spots for our group to meet.
We also announced a t-shirt design contest for the group – FUN!
Thanks to everyone for braving the snowy weather. Sorry that snow kept some of our regular members away – that’s the risk of our November & February meeting unfortunately.
Hope you all can meet us at our May 2nd meeting!!!
