This month (September)

For 14 years we have served the Parkinson’s community as leaders of the Saddleback Church Parkinson’s support group. We have enjoyed the fellowship and friendship with each of you for all these years. After 14 years we think it’s time to step down and let someone else have a turn. The August meeting was our last official (zoom) meeting .  

Our New leader is Manny Johnston. We are sure he will do a fine job volunteering.  He has many leadership skills. He was our Boxing instructor at Saddleback Church for a while until COVID-19 changed the world.

As of right now we have no meetings planned.  Our next meeting together is indeterminate and there  will be no meeting in September, October or November. Perhaps in December or January Manny will start up our group and hopefully we can meet in person.

Don’t forget to check out this Website for any new meetings or new information.

Thank you for your friendship and understanding. May God bless each of you in your Parkinson’s journey.

Nancy and Lee Penney

Last Month (August)

We are meeting online on Wednesday August 19th at 2pm this month using Zoom in the comfort of your own home, on your computer, tablet or smart phone! We apologize for the inconvenience caused by last months Zoom Issues. We understand that a number of you could not get into the meeting. The ladies from the Council on Aging will provide a 30 minute presentation on Medicare and COVID-19, which will include what Medicare covers and fraud/scams targeting beneficiaries. We incorporated some information related to this in the Medicare Essentials presentation last month. So sorry for the technical problems last month, technology failed us! This time we are hoping and praying it will all work! For a link to the meeting please email If you are not familiar with Zoom, please log in a few minutes early to work out any technical issues.
