A NOTE OF THANKS……
Just a quick note to thank you all for the warm welcome yesterday. It was such a positive experience! Last night as I spoke to my fiancé, he remarked at how upbeat I sounded and how happy he is that I have found a group of people who will play an important role in my ongoing mission to make a difference. Our passions to volunteer our talents and experiences have led us to meet marvelous individuals and contribute as we can to causes that are and become dear to us. ….. Ginger W.
Our “Come as You Are” Breakfasts (also known as “Breast Fests”) are monthly Saturday gatherings created to have friends, spouses and children get together for an enjoyable breakfast that serves up heaps of casual conversation, kind words, laughter, along with plenty of listening ears. People with breast cancer who attend may be newly diagnosed, living with cancer, continuing their treatment, or are those survivors who want to help others through the wisdom they gained from their experiences. All who attend provide support over breakfast and a few cups of coffee. This is considered our “pick-me-up event” where many leave feeling rejuvenated, motivated, and loved so they can move forward into the next day, week, month.
TLC Speakers: Each month, except November and December, a speaker(s) from our community shares bits of wisdom and inspiration to provide you with some TLC. Topics vary. Past presentations have included, meditation, breathing, nutrition, drinking water, Chi-lel Qigong, physical fitness, the benefits and cautious use of herbs, and much more. If you would like to be a speaker, kindly email us at ROL@RibbonsVentura.org.
