Elva Roy made the following announcements:
1. Carol Marak, www.carolmarak.com , spoke about the various stages of aging and actions we need to take at the various stages, such as planning future living arrangements, care plans when assistance will be needed, etc. She invited any "elder orphans" to join her private Facebook page called "Elder Orphans." If you don't know the term "Elder Orphan," a synonym would be "solo ager." It describes someone who is aging alone and who doesn't have family or close friends to call on when help is needed. Carol emphasized the fact that we need to team up and take care of each other.
2. Jay Warren, Marketing Communications Manager for the City of Arlington, gave an update on various initiatives going on within the city. He invited us Ambassadors to become "digital ambassadors" by spreading the word about events and activities going on within the city. We can sign up by visiting this website www.arlingtontx.gov/dreamteam .
Lastly, Elva is seeking an Arlington veterinarian to come speak to us about caring for our pets in the hot summer months (flea/tick control, itching, etc.). This was a member's request from 2017. If you know a vet who would like to speak, please alert Elva at (817) 557-5700 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
