It was a gorgeous day for a picnic on Saturday, May 21, as the Kansas City HLAA Chapter celebrated its 3rd Annual Picnic to celebrate Better Speech and Hearing Month.
More than 40 people attended the May 21st event, which included BBQ donated by Hamilton Relay, hearing loss resource exhibits from a variety of local organizations, door prizes, and a special presentation by Hamilton Relay.
Kansas City HLAA Chapter Leader Dennis Selznick was selected as Hamilton Relay’s Outstanding Individual with Hearing Loss in Kansas Award, with Hamilton Representative Cady Lear making the presentation.
Kansas City HLAA would like to thank the following organizations and individuals for their donations and support of this event:
* Olathe YMCA
* Hamilton Relay
* Associated Audiologists
* Meniere’s Resources
* Deaf Cultural Center
There will be no June meeting due to the HLAA Convention in Washington D.C.
The next Kansas City HLAA Chapter event will be a monthly meeting on Saturday, July 16, 10:30 a.m at the Kansas City Public Library – Plaza Library Branch. The July meeting will be a overview of what was learned at the National Convention in Washington D.C.
A huge thank you to all who attended the May 21st picnic and for everyone’s support of the Kansas City HLAA chapter!
