Meeting Agenda For June 2017

June 6 - The Eyes Have It!

The information Judi Delgado will be giving us is vital to every one so think about bringing friends, etc. There are things we not only should, but must do, to save our eyesight while we still can. Judi will explain what is important and what can be done if AMD has already begun.

Judi Delgado is a patient education and advocacy professional with a long career in Ophthalmology. She specializes in age-related macular degeneration (AMD). In addition, Ms. Delgado’s experience includes positions in administration at UCLA, USC and the University of Chicago. She is a fellow in the College of Medical Practice Administrators, has served on the Board of AMD Alliance International and has worked extensively with AARP, Braille Institute and the National Eye Institute.

Don’t 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.

Though 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 20 - Connected Communities and Families: Staying Protected While We Are Always Connected

June 27- Dining with TUGNET

Dining Fund Raiser at Sizzler

CA Pizza Kitchen
Northridge Fashion Center
9301 Tampa Ave #129
Northridge, CA

We’ll be 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.

In case you might want to place an order to go, the phone is: 818-701-5035. Be sure to mention TUGNET when placing your order.

It's always enjoyable dining together with friends. This is the easiest and tastiest way for you to help in TUGNET’s 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, wouldn’t that be grand? If we could garner a check for at least $100 each time we have a dining event, with two events we’d have one night of our meeting room rent covered. Now tell me, what’s better than that?

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d 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 wouldn’t be there!
