November kicks off the holiday season giving us time to gather with family and friends. Please also take time to step back, reflect and give thanks. I am so thankful for all of you! I truly appreciate your dedication to Kindervelt and our mission.
The Halloween party was an absolute BLAST! From DJ Vinny, the tarot card reader, photo booth, delicious food to the great Halloween costume contest, fun was had by all! Thank you to Tracy Smith, her committee and every Kindervelt member who supported our largest citywide event.
Our first Kindervelt Krafts, on October 4 at CCHMC, was a rousing success. Hospital employees, patients, and families enjoyed an abundance of Halloween and Holiday crafts. Diana Peters and her committee now look forward to November 2 for the Kindervelt Krafts at Seton High School. Thank you to all of the groups that have put in endless hours crafting and baking for these events. Please bring a friend and stop by.
Gail Risso presented an informative lecture at the Kindervelt Speaker Series. Her slide show and handouts on “Family Mental Health: Signs and Symptoms of Common Mental Health Issues” brought great insight. A link is being sent to all the presidents to share with you.
Take a look at the calendar in this newsletter to see the upcoming activities of different Kindervelt groups. If you can, go and support your fellow Kindervelt members.
