Well Appreciated Praise for the Kids on the Block
EEA recently received an email from an Edmonton Public School about the
effectiveness of our free Kids on the Block Puppet Presentations.
We thought we would share their comments with you.
"Back in March, we had a puppet show from your team at our school. I need to
pass along some extra feedback for you. A kid in our Kindergarten class had
a seizure during class time. All of the students knew what to do! Kids pushed back the tables for this student, gave him space, told the teachers he was having a seizure
and we needed to call for help, etc. The students then took themselves to the carpet and sat quietly waiting for further instructions. They did all this seamlessly because
they had learned from the puppet show. Thanks for your support with this
and the kids truly learned and used what they knew!

A Well-Deserved Recognition for Gary Sampley and His Wife Sharon
Due to the number of EEA members who were disappointed that they were not able
to attend the tribute for Gary and his wife Sharon, because of previously booked
holidays, the Tribute has been moved to the same day and location as the annual EEA BBQ.
You are invited to be part of "Gary Sampley Tribute Day"
honoring the Edmonton Epilepsy Association's Executive Director, Gary Sampley.
Gary's extraordinary contributions to the Association
have made it one of Canada's foremost and most successful providers of supports and services to individuals and families impacted by epilepsy.
This event will be held on the same date and location as the annual EEA BBQ.
Date: Saturday, August 13th, 2006, 11:00 - 2:00 p.m.
