Happy New Year from ACB Diabetics in Action

Happy New Year to you all! It is a new beginning and we hope you all will really think about ACB Diabetics in Action. 
There is still time to join us; dues are only $10 per year.  If you have not renewed your dues yet, please get them in as soon as possible.  Send your dues to Alice Ritchhart, 139 Altama Connector, Suite 188, Brunswick, GA 31525 and make checks or money orders payable to ACBDA.  Give us your full name, address, phone number, e-mail, and let us know whether you are fully sighted, legally blind, totally blind, or visually impaired, and how you would like to receive the DIA newsletter (e-mail, large print, braille or cassette). 
We are working hard to build our organization into one of the biggest and best affiliates in ACB. 
We hope everyone who joined us on our conference call in December had a good time and learned a lot.  We hope you all will be back in January; bring a friend, too.  The conference calls are held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 9 p.m. Eastern (6 p.m. Pacific).  The call-in number is (712) 432-3675; follow the instructions to room 0.  We always look forward to hearing from all of you. 
Enjoy this month and look forward to February with Valentine's Day. 
The next time we talk with you, it will be Valentine's Day.  If you are planning to send candy to a diabetic, why not buy something healthy or give them something more suitable for a diabetic?
One of us will talk with you next month.  Stay safe and especially healthy until the next time.
