FOCUS The Newsletter of the Methodist Hospital Task Core October 2010 “SECTIONAL MEETINGS” Wednesday, October 13, 2010 “SECTIONAL” meetings will replace our traditional large meeting for the month of October. What does that mean? Eight “host homes” have been selected to host the Sectional meetings. Small groups of members have been assigned to each host home. A listing of host homes and member assignments is listed on the next page. Hostesses’ names are printed in bold type. Please RSVP to your hostess by October 10th. She will appreciate knowing who to expect. Casual dress and lots of fun is the plan for the meeting! The idea for Sectionals came about through discussions of the Strategic Planning Committee last year. The feeling was that General Meetings are rushed and do not allow adequate time for much discussion and socialization. At General Meetings, the Board reports to the assembly/membership. The intent of Sectionals is to provide time for the assembly/membership to share with the Board and thus feel more connected. SECTIONALS ASSIGNMENTS Names of hosts are bolded. Each is followed by names of persons invited to that home.

The enthusiasm and participation is absolutely infectious!! What’s Coming Up: Eight fellow members are welcoming you to their homes for the October 13 Sectionals. Their team includes two who will bring tempting refreshments and one Board member who will lead discussions. The responsibility of everyone else is to show up, enjoy the camaraderie in small clusters, and join in lively conversation. Such fun to see homes of others, to see how many others live in your section of town, and to exchange ideas. Each home’s guests are listed in alphabetical order. Call me if you don’t find your name. October 27 Women’s Health Symposium with Zonya Foco. Concerned that you haven’t gotten a table together – there is still time to be in the table-captain drawing. OR if you want to come alone or with a friend or two, be assured Alyson Smith, who is taking reservations, will put together Task Core, and friends, only tables. November 17 General Meeting, at the hospital, will feature John Shertzer, speaking on Multi-Generational Volunteering: Make the Most of the Differences. His delightful and “right-on” observations are so true for those upcoming holiday family gatherings too!! Remember to SHOP TIL YOU DROP for the Holiday Gift Wrap serving Methodist based employees, before the November meeting. This Year’s Theme and Color: Tradition calls for a Task Core President to select a theme and a color. We talked at the September meeting about the theme of CONNECTIONS and you will hear more throughout the year. The color just had to be bright yellow --A joyous, uplifting almost magical color found in those things that I treasure: The first little flowers peeping out from under the snow in February Clusters of daffodils gently dancing in the Spring breeze The light of the firefly The goldfinch at the bird feeder The luxury of eating pineapple and fresh Indiana corn. A yellow post it note or highlighter to bring me back to reality Harvest moon hanging over the fields The warm glow of a candle and a fire in the fireplace The sunlight shimmering on the lake welcoming me to a new day. The warm peaceful glow cast over the lake by the setting sun May all of your Task Core days be sunny and bright yellow. Cheers, Gail McDermott-Bowler Methodist Hospital Task Core President. . Women's Health Symposium Wednesday, October 27, 2010 10 am - 2 pm The Montage Allison Pointe 8580 East 82nd Street, Indianapolis (on the north side of East 82nd Street, west of Allisonville Road, behind Calico Corners) Reservations: $40 How far we've come -- it doesn't seem all that many years ago that the Women's Health Symposium was held in the fellowship hall of Meridian Street Methodist Church. The hospital provided chicken salad and cookies. The Foundation gave us table favors like pens and Band-Aids. A staff member spoke on a medical topic or a disease of special interest. It wasn't fancy but it was fun -- and we were very appreciative of the special attention given to the Task Core. Now we're looking at the symposium as a community-wide event with potential for making friends and raising funds for Task Core and Methodist Hospital. It's also a vehicle for promoting the Art and Antiques Show just a few months later. This is exciting. This year's event is especially exciting -- especially to those of us who have been working on it. We have a location that's familiar, convenient and spacious. We have all the activities to provide interest and excitement -- health screenings, interesting product and information vendors, unique silent auction packages -- and a speaker who is described in glowing terms -- like "awesome" and "dynamite." And yes, a couple of us have heard her and it's true. This is an event not to be missed. Make your reservation or, better yet, reserve a table with a group of friends (special prize drawing for table captains.) Start thinking about your holiday gift list and those on it who will love Zonya's cook book or video tapes. Just can't wait and want to get in on the action? Call co-chairs Janet Greer or Pat Ritz and let them know you want to help. There are always last minute arrangements, needs for hostesses or people needed to pick up auction packages. Whatever you do, don't delay. Don't miss this special event -- with your attendance and support, we know it will be another highlight in Task Core's history. Women's Health Symposium Wednesday, October 27, 2010 10 am - 2 pm The Montage Allison Pointe 8580 East 82nd Street, Indianapolis (on the north side of East 82nd Street, west of Allisonville Road, behind Calico Corners) Reservations: $40 Have you read the Focus? Have you heard the buzz and felt the excitement in the air? The Women's Health Symposium committee is hard at work getting the word out, checking and double-checking all the details -- and doing all we can to ensure that you and your guests will have a very special day. MHTC President Gail called hearing Zonya Foco "a life altering experience. That's very special indeed. Did your new year's resolution last only a day or two? Is the summer's bikini bulge still, well, a bit evident? The holiday season is just around the corner so If you need some real motivation and some sensible suggestions, Zonya's the one to get you started on your way to smart eating and smart meal preparation for you and your family. You'll love the cookbook -- consider it as a great gift for many of the folks on your holiday list. Alyson Smith is taking reservations. Call her at (317) 254-8234 or email email@example.com Mary Jo Burwinkel has taken the responsibility for making a special list of "Friends of the Women's Health Symposium" whose sponsorship of $50 or more will give them special mention in the program and much gratitude from the symposium committee whose goal is a generous check to the Methodist Health Foundation to support our Task Core's important causes. Call Mary Jo at (317) 566-8392 to let her know your check is in the mail.(14411 Quail Pointe Drive, Carmel IN 46032) Dear Task Core Members, The lazy days of summer have gone and the scent of autumn is in the air…it must be Indianapolis Art & Antiques time!

Wouldn’t it be great if each member brought one new person in to our membership over the next year! Task Core needs you to be that one person who will make that one contact! Take advantage of Task Core’s fantastic activities to introduce new comers to what we do and who we are: Invite someone to shop with you for the Holiday Gift wrap – we all know a bargain hunter: Start talking about the Art & Antiques Show now! Who will you invite? Who will you give your member tickets to? Why is this important? We want more members! We are 26 years strong and we want Task Core to have a strong membership to continue its accomplishments into the future! Last year, we gained 14 new members, thanks to our membership chairs and thanks to YOU! And, we also lost 14 members due to various circumstances. We need to keep our membership growing in order to keep doing the wonderful things we do! We need you!! Thank you for making a difference and thank you for spreading the word about Task Core! Please contact Michele Trivedi (firstname.lastname@example.org, 850-6315) or Carol Tully (email@example.com, 409-8640) with your recommendations for new members!
