Linda Debner
Hello fellow members!
I am hoping you all accomplished your summer plans as the season winds down. The children are back in school, some trees are already turning color, and the smell of autumn is in the air. What a wonderful time of year - sweatshirt weather!
I hope you all enjoyed the last membership meeting on Hospice and Palliative Care. Since we're all in the senior services industry it is good to have information about quality end-of-life care in our mental filing cabinets. You never know when one of your clients will need this information.
The Fall Aging Conference is right around the corner, Thursday, October 27, 2016. I hope all of you wanting to vendor at this event have made your reservations. Sponsor and Vendor spots are limited.  
For those of you not having a sponsor or vendor table be sure to attend the conference. The speakers are great and the food is plentiful, and CEU's are available. It is also always good to see your friends and colleagues, many you only see once a year. This is a great conference for reunions.
I look forward to seeing you at this month's membership meeting on September 22nd, usual time and place.
