Dear Sisters in DKG,

How do we keep up with the last two programs? Well, check out the program spotlight….Teri has provided another amazing "And They Said It Couldn’t Be Done" for our November 13 meeting. Both Mardine and I will be traveling during November so we won’t see you until our December social. Teri will be on her own to lead the group. I need to offer thanks to several of our members:
*To Susan Floyd for providing the November raffle basket.
*To Pauline & our callers for their diligence
*To Mardine, Denise, and Betty for their work producing our new yearbooks
*To Maria & Mardine for getting our dues collected and sent off to Pat Russell, state treasurer
*To Kaye and her dinner teams for the great food and table decorations
*To Tina for getting the Operation Christmas Child boxes to us.
*To Sharon Paine for collecting birthday money for the Literacy Council

Reminders for the November 13th Meeting at First United Methodist Church:
1.Dinner is pulled pork sandwiches... Checkin & socialization at 4:30, meeting at  5:00. Dinner is $10. and served at 5:30.
2. Bring your Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes ready to go.
3. Any corrections for the Yearbook? Call Denise Perkins.
4. School resupply items still needed….see Mardine’s Westside additions
5. Bring boxtops…Marnie is still collecting those for schools

Good News!

*Trudy Worthing’s daughter, Autumn, is expecting a baby in November…maybe Trudy will be staying in Wenatchee longer!
Pam Steinberg is finally recovering from a sinus infection that lasted way too long!
Pauline’s great grandson had ear tubes & adenoid removal in Seattle-did great!
Enjoy what is left of our beautiful fall weather. See you when I get back from Australia, mate! Gidday!

"And They Said It Couldn't Be Done".

A miracle they call the Robotic Exoskeleton...a little like a skeleton worn on the outside of the body. Custom fit for the users body, run by small motors and a battery back pack, controlled by the wearer pushing buttons, allows a paralyzed person to walk at up to 1.1 MPH, gives a better quality of life to the user, provides therapeutic benefits for stroke victims and allows a paralyzed person get out of a wheelchair and feel alive again! We will have a demonstration and explanation of this amazing mobile machine by three Confluence Health physical therapists and a local stroke victim. Prepare to be wowed!

Pictured is Dr. Farrar who was one of the first to use the Robotic Exoskeleton.  Here's what he said  "Then you get in an exoskeleton.
You  lean forward, you stand up, and suddenly you’re 6 feet tall again and you can look at   people   eye to eye. It’s a dramatic difference in how you feel in the world,” he said.

“Even if it’s artificial, walking with a robotic device is still walking, and walking is a miracle. Walking has so many health benefits, even being able to walk short periods of time on a regular basis can make a huge difference in your life. Now we finally have a tool that can give paralyzed people some hope.”



Zeta Chapter is fortunate to have Marile Sexson Kunkel as one of our new members.
From the time Maria brought Marile to her first chapter meeting last spring, Marile has
demonstrated enthusiasm for the activities. She recently retired as drama/music/art teacher
from Chelan School District and was the extra-curricular Drama Director, Okanogan and
Chelan High Schools for 16 years. In 2017, she was named the Most Outstanding Director
of a HS musical, awarded by Seattle’s Fifth Avenue Theatre. She is a member of the
 St. Joseph Catholic church choir and also a member of Music Theatre. Thanks Marile for deciding to join our group.

The response by the members to our Teacher Appreciation Project has
been terrific—thanks to all of you. When asking Tami Lopushinsky about additional
items to include, she suggested the following: Kleenex, both pocket size and boxes;
hand sanitizer; handiwipes; binder clips in various sizes and colors. We are including
Westside High School to be one of the recipients of a basket and the supply list as
noted in their newsletter includes the following: 2-inch, 3 ring binder w/tabs for each classroom; folders to hold and organize contracts and assignments; paper—either in binder or notebook; thumbdrive; pencils and pens.

Bring your items to the November meeting and Billie Lopushinsky will be the
 contact person. Way to Go DKG!
