Our very own Lisa Beth Davis was a contestant on the very popular Jeopardy! game show aired on December 19. Lisa Beth had the most correct answers and didn’t shy away from buzzing in first with the answer. It has to be a nerve wrenching experience to be on the spot trying to recall answers as a question that yours truly could never do. We are so proud of Lisa Beth and we can say the chapter now has a celebrity! See further for more information about the show and how to see the episode in case you missed it.
Ho ho ho!!! What a HLAA holiday party it was! A chance to catch up with old friends, celebrate the holidays, hand out some awards and do our annual White Elephant gift exchange. Most of all, it was a chance for all of us to meet and greet each other in supporting each other through valuable friendships. Don’t forget to check out the photo gallery below and thanks to Georgia for all the pictures. I think she took roughly 5,000 pictures. Don’t forget to check out more on our Facebook groups page managed so well by our own Diane » Read more

’Tis the season for our HLAA-LA fun-filled Holiday Party! Thank you so much for our amazing Grace for hosting it. You won’t want to miss the fun and a chance to catch up with friends. The festivities starts at 7PM, Saturday December 9th.
We had a wonderful annual rap session and potluck centered around the theme of dealing with the communication challenges we experience during the holidays. Ideas, experiences and discussions were held helping all of us find strategies for coping and getting the most joy possible when faced with large group settings.
Our November meeting is fast approaching! Due to the Thanksgiving holiday, our next meeting will be this coming Saturday, November 18. This meeting will be our annual rap session to talk about tips and tricks to manage the stress of the holiday season. Getting fellow friends and family to understand the challenges we face and struggle with can be a daunting experience. We are all here together to help so come and join us to get your holiday season off to a great start!
It was another great turnout for our October chapter meeting with so much to cover. Many highlights to note starting with our now traditional “WOW!” awards. This month the awards go to Katie for her always helpful and all-around efforts and to Diane who has been fantastic as our Facebook administrator.
