  September  5, Mike Emerson: Reel Recovery
See the attached file for visual directions to our new meeting location at Presby-Plano beginning with our meeting on Sept. 5.  Verbally, we will be meeting in the Oak Room of the Conference Center which is located on the lower level (LL-elevator) in Tower A.  Enter thru the main hospital entrance and proceed to the West Elevators to the right of the reception desk and snack bar (open until 8P for you Starbucks lovers).  Take the elevator down to LL, follow signage to the Conference Center - the Oak Room will be on your right as you enter the center.  There is also a bank of vending machines for drinks and snacks near the elevator exit on the lower level.  Ample parking should be available in front of the hospital at the time of day we meet.  In the event of inclement weather, I suggest parking in the garage at the East end of the hospital and walking under cover thru the building to the main lobby to the West Elevators in Tower A.

Our speaker in September will be Mike Emerson representing the Reel Recovery organization (www.reelrecovery.org).  Many of you know of this organization , but we have never had a speaker from this group present to us.  This organization provides a free and relaxing weekend adventure of fly fishing, fellowship and camaraderie with fellow cancer patients/survivors, good food and comfortable accommodations.

Until then, be safe and be healthy!
