FOB Makes a Difference

FOB CANAM INC {501(C)(3)}

The Friends of Barron annual dental clinic has affected the legislative process in Colorado. A recent legislative action, House Bill 1045, concerned the application of Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) by dental hygienists and was introduced by Representative Jonathan Singer and Senator Tate.  During the House committee hearing, one of the people to testify was Deb Astroth, RDH, BSDH, a member of the Barron dental mission team. She mentioned in her testimony the history of use of SDF with the children of Barron.

The committee unanimously voted to sent the bill to the full House where it was passed and sent to the Senate.  The Senate committee invoked a rarely used procedure to Supermotion the bill to the full Senate without a hearing as the full committee was supportive.

The Senate passed the bill and Governor Hickenlooper signed the law on March 22, 2018.

Friends of Barron is thrilled to participate…

Organic Food Delivered?

Many here at EDM are familiar with Fresh Boutique, the organic store that used to be in Hector’s Bistro back by the bakery. A few months ago Karina moved to Av. Gaviotas #507. She is willing to deliver orders to us at the embarcadero at Stone Island on Saturday afternoons, after she closes at 3pm. My suggestion was that she put together orders for us, at $300, $400, or $500 pesos, mixed bag, her choice, fruits and vegetables in season. If any of us would like to order an organic chicken or eggs, that would be additional. She is game to try this and understandably would like to have 3 or 4 orders to make it worth her while.

In talking to a few others here at EDM, we have come up with a Wednesday evening meeting time of 6 pm at the Phase 2 Palapa to get our orders together. I will send the order over to Karina on Thursday for a Saturday delivery. We can arrange the pickup at the Wednesday meeting. If you have any suggestions on how better to handle this, please bring them to the Wednesday meeting.

Craft Circle Forming

For those of us who love to work with our hands, here is an opportunity to do so socially. Modeled on the wonderful oil painting session we had last week, the Circle will meet every Wednesday afternoon from two or three on. Artisans and novices alike can come and go as they please throughout the afternoon. No craft idea or skill is required. But if you hanker to learn to crochet or knit or macrame or cross point or stand on your head, come on over to condo 1105/6 anytime on a Wednesday afternoon if you wanna learn something, or teach something or just hang out. You don’t need to bring anything if you’re a yarn person. Other crafts require more stuff than is currently here. Or if you’d like, download an interesting pattern or idea and visit the local Parisina store in nearby Santa Rosa Plaza to purchase your own supplies. During the Circle, someone will help you interpret the scramble of letters and numbers those directions sometimes blur into. You can even design and make your own club head cover, if you are so motivated.

Remember, recent studies show that pattern repetition makes our cortexes happy. Doing something other than sunbathing or even reading can extend your life. And crocheting a large afghan in the shade with the waves breaking gently in the background is as good as meditation. Trust me.
