Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place


I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.
I am not responsible for it's contents, I am just a copier of information searched on the computer. Please understand the copies are just that, copies and at times, I am unable to enlarge the wording or keep it uniformed as I wish. This is for you to read and to always keep an open mind.
Please discuss this with your doctor, should you have any questions, or concerns. Never do anything without talking to your doctor. I do not make any money from this website. I volunteer my time to help all of us to be informed. Please No advertisers, and No Information about Herbal treatments. This is a free site for all.
Thank you.

40 attend Hagerstown Parkinson’s Support Group picnic

July 1, 2017




The Hagerstown, Maryland Parkinson’s Support Group held its summer picnic on June 16.
Forty people associated with Parkinson’s disease enjoyed the day at Martin L. "Marty" Snook Memorial Park in Halfway. The group ate fried chicken from AC&T accompanied by a variety of dishes and desserts provided by participants.
The host, Art Guyer, recognized the absence of Frank and Vi McConnell; Frank died late last month.
Dean Cook, co-host, conducted a couple of “memory” quizzes, giving away a $10 gift certificate to the winner. Cook also called bingo for the group, giving away about 50 wrapped prizes brought by the members. Chuck Bihun entertained the group with some banjo strumming.
In attendance were Art and Doris Guyer; Dean and Carol Cook; Mike and Marci Saterbak; Harry and Phyllis Davis; Hugh and Rayetta Schindel; Diane and Sherwood Bair; Becky and Paul Corderman; Bill and Marquita Storms; Jay and Betty Stouffer; Harry and Janet Taylor; Barbara and Jerry Harrell; Lu and Jim Mattern; Chuck and Aura Bihun; Bonnie Embly; Paul and Linda Embly; Belinda Neff and son Dylan; Marie Fogarty; Talia Valencia; Charles and Betty Martin; Edie Johnston; Peg Hayzlett; and Gloria and Carl Rith.
The Hagerstown Parkinson’s Support Group will hold another picnic Friday, Sept. 15, at the same place.
The group meets on the first Thursday of every month at 11:45 a.m. at the Western Sizzlin’ restaurant in Halfway. Anyone associated with Parkinson’s and those interested in learning about the disease are welcome to attend. A variety of speakers help educate members throughout the year.
In addition to the regular monthly meetings, the group holds a caregivers’ breakfast on the third Monday of every month at Hagerstown Family Diner, bowls once a month and hosts other activities.
