The Mountain View Homemakers will meet at Pagosa Springs Medical Center Thursday, April 12, at 11:30 a.m.
Because a large group is expected and there is limited parking, everyone is asked to either travel to the hospital with a car full of attendees or meet at the Episcopal Church by 11:15 a.m. to carpool to the hospital. Members and other interested women coming to the meeting should notify the hospitality committee by calling Glessie Drake at 731-9827 or e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
Following a lunch provided by the hospital, William (Bill) Bentley M.D., a Denver-based, board-certified neurologist who comes to the local hospital several days each month, will help those at the meeting understand more about strokes. The topics expected to be part of the program include the warning signs and how to recognize strokes, what to do if a stroke is suspected, what will happen at the hospital, types of strokes, ways to prevent strokes and much more.
The Homemakers organization is a 49-year-old monthly gathering of women who are interested in making the lives of their families and their community more livable. There are no dues or membership requirements and every interested woman is welcomed.
