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 having a very important meeting this Saturday and hope many of you will join us. We’ll be looking at the state of our chapter… where we’ve been, where we’re at, and where we’re headed. We can’t do this without your input! This is YOUR chapter, so please bring your thoughts, suggestions and ideas to this lively, open discussion.
As always, there will be coffee and plenty of refreshments, and the meeting will be captioned and looped.
Let’s celebrate a new beginning with a new website!
It was a long time coming but with the hard work and dedication of our Website Committee, we are proud to promote positive change with the release of the new website!
This chapter has a lot of passion and devotion to our HOH community so as the hearing needs and challenges continue to evolve, so too will this website. Ongoing new features and enhancements will be announced in the coming months so please continue to check in on a regular basis. And, we want to hear your ideas on how this website can better serve our chapter and HOH community, and be a great place for people to know that “we get it”.
Please use the Contact Us form to send us your comments and suggestions, plus anything that may not be working to your expectations.

Hope to see many of you at this Saturday’s meeting! We’ll hear from a panel of “mixed couples” (one partner with hearing loss and one partner with normal hearing), who will discuss how hearing loss can affect their relationships. We welcome you to invite your friends, family members and significant others. It should be an informative, engaging and entertaining discussion, moderated by our own Dana Sunderland!
See you Saturday!
