HLAA-SLC has put together a book club which will alternate with our regular meetings. Last month’s selection was King Peggy: An American Secretary, Her Royal Destiny and the Inspiring Story of How She Changed an African Village by Peggilene Bartels and Eleanor Herman.
We met last Saturday to discuss this delightful book, rich with tradition and scenery. We all enjoyed reading it sharing links and information from online. Thank you Kathy for sharing this book with us.
The meeting was captioned (thank you Sanderson Center!) by TypeWell who did a great job as a few us depend on those captions. That’s what makes this book club so great, the accessibility for those of who are hard of hearing and hesitant to join other book club for fear of missing out on discussion.
You can see the tablet on the table which picked up the captions. The captions were also projected onto a screen on the wall also.

Our next book is The Book Thief by Markus Zusak.
We meet on October 11th from 9a-10:30a at the Sanderson Center for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in Taylorsville. Feel free to join us, it will be held in the looped room next time too! Questions will follow as the date gets closer.
Last weekend we had a social at Mike and Donna’s house. There was great food and plenty of time to talk to each other. (We apologize to those who didn’t get the invite to the social and will make sure it comes across our yahoo email list next time.) It was a perfect summer evening for a few special announcements.
The chapter presidency has changed from me (Chelle) to Karen. Woo-hoo, thank you Karen for stepping up. It’s good to change our leadership every so often because everyone brings something new to the position adding more to the chapter. It keeps a chapter healthier.
I’m now taking the treasurer’s spot. Many, many thanks to Kathy for being the treasurer for so many years. She held the spot in the best of times and in the worst times to keep the chapter going. Bless you Kathy, we appreciate beyond words.
Here are some pictures from the dinner the other night.
