At the Multiple Sclerosis Alliance it is our mission to provide services, programs and resources to individuals with MS to help them improve the quality of their life and achieve greater hope, health and independence.
Every Christmas, for the past seven years, you can find members of the Multiple Sclerosis Alliance of Southern Colorado enjoying delicious food, a cozy atmosphere, great company and good cheer at the Annual Christmas Luncheon hosted by the Fraternal Order of Eagles #143. We would like to take this opportunity to recognize Cindy who has been an integral part in helping the MSA be one of the organizations that is able to participate in the Christmas Luncheons hosted by the FOE. Cindy’s role with the FOE has changed over the 15 years that she has been a member to include holding office at one point. Cindy is an active member of our community and is ever so humble in accepting gratitude and thanks for her hard work and dedication. She shared some history of the FOE and noted that the luncheons began with the Women’s Auxiliary of the FOE in 1962. These women often knitted items to be sold to raise money for the luncheons and would begin knitting the very next day after the luncheon to get started for the next year. The MSA is thankful for this tradition of generosity of the FOE #143 and for Cindy’s kindness, commitment and dedication.
Whether or not we participate, we have all heard of the positive effects that exercise can have on our overall wellbeing. This could not be truer for those with Multiple Sclerosis.
