Wow, what a great turn-out at the Late Effect of Polio (LEoP) Information
Session at the Tea Tree Gully City Library. There were over 120 members,
friends and most importantly new members in the meeting; listening to Paul
Cavendish tell us all about our life with the LEoP.
Paul was able to cover a very broad range of subjects, at least some of
which affect all of us Post Polios. Discussing how ageing and LEoP can be
a very debilitating combination, but how with help and information from Polio
Australia and Polio SA improvements in lifestyle are possible. All in all, a very
successful afternoon. I must extend my gratitude to all Committee Members
of Polio SA for conducting this information session in a professional way and
apologise for my lack of attendance, thank you all.
While speaking about successful functions I would like to remind you all that
the Polio Australia Wellness Retreat will be held from the 11th-14th October
2018 in the Stamford Grand Hotel in Glenelg. As part of the program a “Walk
With Me” event will be held on Thursday 11th October at 3:00pm and finish at
approximately 5:00pm, we will be walking along the Glenelg Foreshore. We
will be looking for sponsors and walkers to take part in this event, if you are
interested please contact me. Every little bit you can do will help make this
another successful occasion for Polio Survivors in South Australia.
