We had a great meeting today, hosted by Hamilton Relay and California Phones. I’m attaching the meeting transcripts, thanks to our speedy captionist Melodie. A big thank you to Debra Rogers from Hamilton Relay, who did most of the planning for the meeting, gave a great presentation, AND brought us coffee and food!
Thanks to Joe and Lisa Beth Snyder, our April 16th garage sale was a great success, netting over $1,000! They went above and beyond the call of duty, and we cannot thank them enough.
Rap Session – Connecting with New and Old Members
We haven’t had a rap session for awhile, so thought it would be a good time to get back to what we do best – offer mutual support, understanding and compassion.

Many thanks to Lisa and Tim for putting together a great Power Point presentation that we used on Saturday to give what we called “The State of the Chapter Report”. We will post the Power Point soon so you can see what you missed it you weren’t there on Saturday. We’ll also post the transcript as soon as it’s available.
Our Annual HLAA-LA garage sale is right around the corner. This year our garage sale will be held at the home of Joe and Lisa Beth Snyder in Altadena. This fundraiser is one of our biggest efforts as we try to raise $1000 that goes toward the cost of captioning our meetings. At the end of the sale, any unsold items are always donated to charity.
We are going to host a CA Phones Town Hall Meeting. Per their website, “Thanks to California Phones, from the California Telephone Access Program, it’s easier for everyone to stay connected. We offer free specialized phones that make it easier to hear, dial and call. Over half a million Californians are already enjoying California Phones.”
