A. The PSGFL Steering Committee is continuing to offer financial assistance to its members from its fundraising efforts to defray costs of participation in programs or to assist in purchasing equipment and other resources to those with Parkinson’s Disease and their Care Partners. In the past the PSGFL has been awarded several F.F. Thompson Foundation, Mary Clark Thompson grants for this purpose, and we are very grateful for their support.

B. Brand New Scholarship: "John Paul Memorial Respite Scholarship"
The Parkinson Support Group of the Finger Lakes announces availability of funds from the newly created "John Paul Memorial Respite Scholarship" program. These funds are being made available to honor and memorialize the efforts, support and friendship of our group's founder John Paul. We also gratefully thank Pat Smith for her continuing efforts of our Support Group and those with PD and Care Partners.
We are offering a limited amount of $100 scholarships (one per household) to you, our PSGFL members, so that you can find hope, joy, determination, peace and thankfulness for your continuing journey with Parkinson's Disease.
You are probably asking for the request criteria. You might enjoy a day at the spa, a special dinner at a restaurant (or ordered in), a house/pet sitter so you can take a little trip, maybe indulge in some special champagne, or something else that will bring happiness. We want you to take time for yourselves, take a long-needed break and breathe a bit easier for your respite time.
Use of funds is at your option; no follow up will be needed. We would, however, love to hear how you found joy and respite with your $100.
If you would like to take advantage of this generous offer, please send an email to Trish Haggett (see below) with the information listed below BY WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 25, 2021, which is the day of our PSGFL picnic.
