Change of Meeting Plans – Sat. Sept. 28, 2019

Unfortunately Nutritionist, Tara Pawson had to cancel due to unexpected circumstances. Instead we will be having Ali Shamei from Wheelchair Works in Richmond speak to us. They sell new and used mobility equipment including wheelchairs, walkers, scooters and stairlifts. He will answer our questions and show us what is new on the market. Wheelchair Works also offers a monthly maintenance program to keep your equipment in top running condition. Check out their website – www.wheelchairworks.ca. Bring your questions!
The meeting will be from 1-4 PM at City Centre Library in Surrey. Please RSVP whether planning to attend or not.
