Riverland CFS Support Group meeting:
26 October 2007
Here are some comments from Society president Peter Cahalan about the Riverland CFS Support Group’s very first meeting, held on 26 October 2007 at the Berri Library Multi Media Room in Berri:
David and Glenda Shepherd drove from Balaklava and I headed to Berri from Adelaide on Friday 26 October 2007 for the launch of the new Riverland support group.
Simon and Raelene Jackson had done a fantastic job of publicising the event and their efforts were rewarded with a respectable rollup of 10 persons with CFS plus partners and several apologies from people too ill to get there on the day.
Louise, a volunteer from 93.9 Riverland Life FM, was there and the station will be joining other local media in discussing ME/CFS.
The spirit of the occasion was terrific. People shared openly and respectfully with each other and all the signs are that it will be a great group. We all owe thanks to the Jacksons for their determination to fill a need.
Two of the ten attendees joined the Society there and then, joining the three members also present. (Hi guys and greetings Clytie – sorry you couldn’t be there.) Glenda took pics of the occasion.
