ABIN-PA's WESTERN PA ANNIVERSARY LUNCHEON - CLASS Building, Swissvale, Pittsburgh, PA

After holding ABIN-PA's 5th and 6th Eastern PA Anniversary Luncheons in King of Prussia and Philadelphia, the Western PA 7th Anniversary celebration was enjoyed by fifty-two people at the beautiful CLASS building in Swissvale on April 5th. We enjoyed fantastic catering by Square Cafe. Ron Ruppen arranged wonderful table groupings and helped with Bob Neal's DVD from Conemaugh Center, Dr. Morganti's PowerPoint on hyperbaric oxygen and one by Jessica Chappell on people skills. Janna Leyde reduced our stress levels with simple Yoga moves. Joanne Martin handled the 50/50, Diane Cagey of CLASS handled the Basket Raffle, Samantha Lambert (Miss Pennsylvania candidate and TBI survivor) drew door prize numbers, and registration was handled by Carl Nebinski and John Dively. Thanks to 4Imprint, Joan Steinberg, UPS, Costco, Main Line Rehab, and Kidde for door prizes and raffle items. Thanks to Jonathan Able DC, Main Line Rehab, Health Navigators, and Temple's Institute on Disabilities for exhibiting with us - and to Phyllis Seadler, Debbie Bobeck, Ed Crinnion, and Chris Chase for our Survivors' Achievement Table. Barbara Dively, President and Executive Director, presented awards to Representative Stevenson for the Brain Injury Caucus, to Brenda Eagan Brown for the BrainSTEPS program, and to Bob Neal, Ed Crinnion, and Jeannette Kline for service to the brain injury community. Jeannette, age 93, gave a marvelous spontaneous speech which touched everyone. Our Eastern PA 7th Anniversary Luncheon is next on Saturday May 3rd at the Crowne Plaza Philadelphia West on City Avenue.

2013 ABIN-PA ANNUAL ANNIVERSARY LUNCHEON - CROWNE PLAZA PHILADELPHIA WEST

Forty-five persons attended our second Annual Anniversary Luncheon on May 18, 2013. This was ABIN-PA's 6th anniversary and the Luncheon was repeated as it was so enthusiastically enjoyed last year. The location on City Avenue permited those using ParaTransit from Montgomery and Philadelphia Counties to avoid any transfers.

We enjoyed music by Karl Williams (hear his songs and read his story in 'Our Stories"). We learned about progress in assistive technology for people with disabilities from Amy Goldman of Temple's Institute for People with Disabilities and Susan Tachau of the Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation which provides loans at extremely low monthly payments if public funding is not available. Barbara Dively, ABIN-PA's President and Executive Director, presented the Year in Review and was our moderator.
