We are cancelling the June 24th Chapter meeting due to lack of attendance… but we have something better in store. Instead of a June chapter meeting, we’ll have an Independence Day party on Saturday, July 1st, at Katherine and Danny’s in Montrose!
Our March 25th Chapter Meeting – Steering Committee Elections, PLUS Law Enforcement and Hearing Loss!
We have a real treat for our March chapter meeting: special guest speaker Sgt. Dan Widman, 23-year veteran of the LAPD, currently the Field Operations Supervisor, North Hollywood Division, AND the son of our very own President Pat Widman! Sgt. Widman will speak to us about a very important topic: how to interact with Law Enforcement when you have a hearing loss.
Ever wanted to talk with your hands? Imagine having a conversation with someone across a crowded room and never uttering a word with your mouth. ASL is a beautiful and expressive language that lets you chew and chat at the same time.
The theme of our February meeting is “Spring Forward,” as we celebrate our chapter’s growth and renewal. We will start things off with round-the-room introductions, which will give us a chance to briefly share about ourselves and hear each others’ stories. We will then discuss what’s in store for our chapter – future plans, fun times, and fresh leadership. We want to hear what you have to share! Please join us for what will be a lively and invigorating meeting.
A reminder! We now meet in the East Room of the Wingate Building at the Huntington Memorial Hospital, 100 W. California Ave, Pasadena.
We’re kicking off 2017 with a presentation from audiologist Jeff Grama, who’s been a good friend to HLAA for many years. Jeff will update us on the latest hearing aid technology and trends. Jeff is a great audiologist (many of our members are satisfied clients!), and can answer any of your audiology-related questions as well.
Remember – this is the first meeting in our NEW MEETING SPACE: the East Room of the Wingate Building at the Huntington Memorial Hospital, 100 W. California Ave, Pasadena.
Come see HLAA-LA member Chris Grafil perform, along with other talented comedians, while helping out our chapter! The venue will be looped!
Surviving the Holidays with Hearing Loss – Rap Session & Potluck!
Our annual rap session is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season, as we discuss how to get through the holiday season with hearing loss. This year, we’ll engage in some role playing — acting out possible scenarios to help illustrate communication and coping strategies. It should be fun and educational, so please join us! Feel free to bring a dish, dessert or beverages for our potluck lunch following the meeting. Meeting newsletter can be viewed here.
