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

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 or 1-877-566-6123.
