ANNOUNCING JAVA TALK, SASKATOON

Java Talk was first introduced at the fall 2014 Symposium and further explained in the January 2015 issue of the Saskatchewan Lupine. As an informal group, those who attend network and socialize approximately once a month over refreshments at a coffee shop or restaurant. Meetings have usually been held on a Friday afternoon, however, alternate meeting times are gradually being planned to include those who cannot attend on a weekday.

Java Talk extends an open invitation to anyone who may have lupus or any other autoimmune condition, as well as to their family members and friends. Do join us at our future meetings, whether you reside in Saskatoon, or are travelling to the Saskatoon area.

For information on the next meeting, or to be added to the contact list, please contact Tracy Rae by cell: 306-262-1162 after 6:00 pm on weekdays (text messages preferred), or by e-mail at trcyrae@yahoo.ca.

Information on the contact list will be used for the express purpose of Java Talk, and at no time will be distributed for any reason outside of Java Talk without prior written permission.

SCOTT MOEN GOLF TOURNAMENT

Introducing the 3rd Annual Scott Moen Memorial Golf Tournament to be held at the Saskatchewan Landing Golf Resort on Saturday, June 20, 2015.

Scott Moen was a person who loved life and enjoyed participating in sports. Golf was very dear to him, as it was one of the only sports he could continue to play after he was diagnosed with Lupus at the age of 19. He continued to enjoy the game of golf up until his passing at the age of 32.

Consider this your invitation to become a part of this worthwhile event as a sponsor, golfer or both, with all proceeds being donated to Sask. Lupus and The Canadian Diabetes Association. Last year with the help of our sponsors and golfers we raised $9,400.00. With your help we are hoping to meet or beat last years amount.

Sponsorship Levels:
Major Sponsor - $500
Hole Sponsor - $200
Prize Sponsor

Please indicate your desired level of sponsorship by June 1st by phone to Ray Moen at 306-774-4483, Murray Moen at 306-773-9050 or e-mail smoenmemorialgolf@hotmail.com.

Golfers – see attached registration form
Entry Fee: Members - $75, Non-Members - $100

Lupus Information Kit
A free Lupus Information Kit may be requested at our mailing address, toll free phone number or e-mail address listed below. The kit includes basic lupus and membership information, and a complimentary copy of our newsletter, "The Saskatchewan Lupine".

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Lupus SK is proud to say that we are an almost entirely volunteer-run organization. That means a large portion of the funds raised go towards the goals in our mission statement, to provide support for those affected by lupus through understanding, education, public awareness and research. A small amount only, is used for administration. That also means that our volunteers are indispensable! Lupus SK would not exist without volunteers. That is why we need you to please consider joining our team as a volunteer.

New volunteers are always welcome and there are many ways to become involved. Let us know what your talents and interests are and we will find just the right spot for you. We have a lot of fun, we feel connected and the accomplishments are very worthwhile.

If you would like to join us, please contact Irene Driedger at idriedger@sasktel.net or 1-877-566-6123.
