Our next fab meeting is next Saturday, Oct. 24th. Our very special guests will be a speaker from the Sam Simon Foundation and a guest dog (or dogs?). All dogs are great, but service dogs are the best! Could you use a hearing one to help your lifestyle? A family member and helper for life? Find out for yourself and come with your questions. It should be fascinating (and adorable)!
Hear Center is having their Open House today, Saturday October 10 from 10AM to 12PM
FREE T-coil checks, and more
It was wonderful to see so many people at yesterday’s meeting. Thanks to all of you who attended.
I have exciting news to share. We are pleased to welcome 2 new members to the Steering Committee: Tim Browning and Judy Hoewisch. Thank you both for stepping up and bringing new energy to our Committee! In addition, I was re-elected. Tim, Judy and I will be joining Patricia Widman, Alicia Fernandez, and Ken Cluskey (who will be up for re-election next year).
At the link below you will find the transcript from our meeting yesterday, provided by our captivation Melodie. And a great picture of the group!
I saw Perry Hanavan, Aud’s webinar last week on using your smartphone as an ALD and it was really interesting. I don’t know how many of you saw it but if you didn’t, it was impressive and I thought I would share my notes with you. You can also see the webinar on the main HLAA website.
Please consider running for the Steering Committee. It is not hard or tons of work to participate. You would not be overwhelmed. The rest of us are always here to help if you have questions or concerns! We’d love to be able to work with new people and get a new perspective on SC issues.

Dave Myer’s article — in the original he gave credit to all of the individuals and groups across the country who have been involved in the Looping movement — the WSJ cut those 300 words. Still—it’s progress — and public education on hearing loss.
In Fond Remembrance…
In the fall of 2015 we lost a dear member of our group, Alan Klink. Alan and his sweet spirit touched us all. We will miss him and are grateful for the time we had with him.
We had a great meeting on Saturday, a full house with a very knowledgeable speaker from the House Institute. I think a few of us are going to be making appointments to see Suzannah in the near future!
August 2015 Meeting Transcripts I got from Jane from our Saturday meeting.
See you all in September; don’t forget we have our elections!
