A welcome from the president of Mended Hearts Chapter 12:
Hello! It is now late February and the snow is melting from an unusual cold spell that set many records in Central Texas. Today was the first chance I had to go outside in over one week. It was nice to breathe fresh air. Last month the weather was fantastic and now the weather is so bad the trucks cannot deliver products to the stores. Many grocers are working with empty shelves. Oh well, this is Texas and in a couple of days, it will be back to the normal pattern of the good ole Texas way of life.
Healthwise, we will continue as last month/year with Covid19 being punctuated with more strains of the Corona Viruses. Practicing “Social Distancing” and wearing masks are still the best prevention we have. Vaccines are being distributed but it is now “wait and see”.
Most of you have a bad case of cabin fever and certainly would like to meet fellow members in person but the whole Covid-19 virus thing is still in charge of the situation. This month we will once again meet via a video chat (Zoom).
One of my greatest responsibilities as Assistant Region Director is growing our region membership. Bring some ideas to our meeting as to how we can increase our membership. What we offer is compassion and understanding to all heart patients and we want everyone to feel like a part of our greater family. Bring a guest!
I think it is very important for us to visit and encourage each other. Join the meeting early to get acquainted with others while waiting for the session to begin. You can join in as early as 6:00 pm.
Our meeting this month is on February 25th. We will be social distancing by having a virtual meeting using the Zoom program. This reminds me to say you may share this link with any guests you would like to invite.
The agenda is very straightforward.
- 6:00 pm Social time
- 6:30 pm Short Program - Summary of the National News, Meetings, and training sessions.
- ~ 7:00 pm Business meeting
- ~ 7:30 pm Adjourn
Please plan on attending.
Stay healthy by practicing good habits of wearing a mask when in public places, wash your hands often and pay attention to social distancing. The Covid-19 virus is still a real threat and we “heart patients” must be careful.
Note: for those who are new to ZOOM or unfamiliar with it and would like some help, please contact Lloyd Jeffries (512-240-4243) or Dale Whitney (254-913-5311)
