Dont turn a blind eye to your vision
AMD is the most common cause of sight loss; but early diagnosis
and treatment can allow sufferers to live a normal life.
she recently declared old age to be just a number imposed
upon the elderly, Dame Judi Dench now admits
that she can no longer travel alone for fear of bumping into
things. The much-loved actress, who recently filmed The Second
Best Exotic Marigold Hotel in India, said last week that her
eyesight has now deteriorated to the extent that she needs
a chaperone to stop her falling over like a mad, drunk
lady and she can no longer read her own scripts. Dame
Judi has both wet and dry forms of AMD.

June 27- Dining
Fund Raiser at Sizzler
Northridge Fashion Center
9301 Tampa Ave #129
dining together at one of our favorite spots, CA Pizza Kitchen.
I think everyone
waits expectantly for the night we have our dining together
evening at CA Pizza Kitchen. Their menu is such that regardless
of your diet limitations, you can find an item that fits your
plan and is pleasing as well. So plan to join your friends.
Also, it helps our cause if you can invite family members
or friends to enjoy the evening with you. Most get
there between 5 & 6 p.m.
case you might want to place an order to go, the phone is:
818-701-5035. Be sure to mention TUGNET when placing your
It's always enjoyable dining together
with friends. This is the easiest and tastiest
way for you to help in TUGNETs fund raising efforts.
Try to come as the number of guests is always an influence
as to whether we can return. Looking forward to seeing you.
Be sure to pickup a flyer at the meeting, You need to present
it when ordering.
Thanks to all who have supported our dining events through
the year, it has helped our treasury while you had a pleasant
time and filled your tummies. We will continue to keep you
informed of the schedule of restaurants in the new year.
Please note: Dining events will
be planned for the fourth Tuesday from January on. That will
accommodate the board of directors meeting changing to the
second Tuesday each month.
There is no easier way that I know of to help our treasury,
assuming that we have good participation. If you can invite
someone to come with you - or meet you there, wouldnt
that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100
each time we have a dining event, with two events wed
have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell
me, whats better than that?
If you have a favorite restaurant youd
like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know
about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work
with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is
surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in
this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers
who otherwise wouldnt be there!
