From the MAPA President

Hello MAPA Members,

“Tis the Season to be Busy!” We are now in the time of year wishing the day had 48 hours to fit in all the extras we do, both at work and at home in this crazy month of December. Please take time to breathe, stretch and focus on yourself. You are valuable, respected and loved by those you care for. Thank you for getting up every morning and giving of yourself, thank you for the work you do day in and day out!

On that note, I would like to give a “shout-out” of thanks and appreciation to our MAPA Secretary, Liz Jurchisin. Liz will be retiring at the end of this month from her career as Life Enrichment Coordinator. We will miss you Liz, best of luck in the next stage of your life! May you enjoy retirement and a well-deserved rest. She is passing the baton for MAPA Secretary, so if you are interested, please let Julie Tomfohrde/Communications Chair or I know. Our contact information is on our website.

I hope you all can make our first meeting of 2019 at Summit Place on Tuesday, January 15. The topic will be about changes and transitions as we age. As we know, the weather can be questionable in January and your safety is important to us. If weather predictions indicate a severe storm, myself and the board will try to determine if the meeting needs to be canceled. In case of bad weather, our snow date will be rescheduled for January 22, 2019. 

Check WCCO for cancellation d/t weather conditions on the day of our meeting and check our MAPA Website.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a Happy New Year to all of you! See you in January.

Renee McHugh, ADC
