Meeting Agenda For June 2015

June 2 - 3-D Printing

Is this something that fascinates you? It does me. I always spend some time in the 3-D printing area when I attend CES and just watch what is produced. Now I am finding it very exciting to read about the advances being made, particularly in the medical field.

We will have a very special presentation of 3-D printing for this meeting with one of our own members showing off his own 3-D printer. Jim Ubersetzig will be our presenter. Remember what a great meeting we had when he brought in the robots he had created and had them moving about the room? It will be just as interesting and exciting this time.

Don’t miss it!

June 9 - Dining with TUGNET

It's always more enjoyable to dine with friends!

We will meet at El Torito, on Tampa in Northridge anytime from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Be sure to have a copy of the flyer with you in order for TUGNET gets the donation!

We have had many successful meals there in the past so I know you will be looking forward to it this month.

Since we have those second, fourth and fifth Tuesdays without TUGNET meetings now, it gives us a chance to get together, usually on the second Tuesday, and dine together. I’m sure you enjoy a restaurant meal from time to time, so do join us at the particular restaurant that is working with us to donate a portion of the proceeds from TUGNET members who participate.

It is important to have a copy of the appropriate flyer for these occasions. It is always available, even if you are not’t able to get to a meeting to pick it up. Please ask for it, either by e-mail or a phone call. The e-mail addresses and phone numbers of board members are on page 2 of the newsletter, so take advantage of that and ask for a flyer when you think you’ll be able to join us.

If you have a favorite restaurant you’d like to have included in these plans, let Jefferson Kent know about it. His contact info is on page 3. He is happy to work with any location which welcomes groups. By the way, it is surprising how many restaurants are glad to participate in this sharing program. After all, this brings them customers who otherwise wouldn’t be there!

June 16 - Successful Aging

This is a topic of interest to all of us since there isn’t a one of us that isn’t affected? Right?

We will be welcoming Helen Dennis to talk to us about the many factors that affect the way we age. Those who read the Daily News will recognize her from her column in the Sunday papers. She has so much to say that is so relevant, I am thrilled that she has agreed to come to our meeting.

Helen Dennis, a nationally recognized leader on issues of aging, employment and retirement, has received recognition and numerous awards, including those for her university teaching at the University of Southern California’s Davis School at the Andrus Gerontology Center and for her contributions to the field of aging.

She is a frequent keynote speaker, lecturer and workshop leader. Helen writes a weekly column on Successful Aging for the Southern California’s Daily Breeze and seven additional newspapers reaching 1.3 million readers plus on line. Fully engaged in the field of aging, she was a delegate to the 2005 White House Conference on Aging and has had extensive experience with the media including Prime Time, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times and the Christian Science Monitor.

Aren’t we lucky to have her come to TUGNET? Don’t miss this evening’s presentation!
