Special Bulletin April 2022

Dear members, as we approach our last meeting of the year, our May AGM, we are planning the Election of Officers and Executive Members for 2022/2023.

Hearing 101: Love your Ears
submitted by Eileen Phillips
Please join us at 11:00 a.m. on May 11 for the final session of this year. The presentation will be given by a team from HearingLife. They will be Zooming in from Toronto.

This will be an interactive session and is titled Hearing 101: all you need to know. You will leave the session knowing how to “love your ears” and all the things that hearing makes possible. You might even win a prize since there will be prizes awarded for questions answered. Doesn’t this sound informative and fun? Please join us for the AGM on May 11 and stay for this presentation at 11:00.

Thank you to the members who join us for our Speakers’ Series. Most of our speakers donate their time and expertise to us and they appreciate having a live audience for their presentation.
