LARGO Ė More than 30 individuals attended the first meeting of the Starkey Parkies Nov. 7 at the Grand Villa in Largo.

The meeting was led by long-time support-facilitator Marcy McCall. Residents from Clearwater,

Seminole, Pinellas Park and Largo attended. Attendees included those newly diagnosed and others who have been challenged by Parkinsonís Disease for many years.

According to McCall, who co-wrote the first edition of ď100 Questions About Parkinson Disease,Ē the large turn-out for this first grassroots meeting indicates a growing number of folks with Parkinsonís living in Pinellas County and in need of a centralized information and support exchange.

According to a press release, attendees expressed an interest in getting together on a regular basis, not only for support, but also for socialization and therapeutic activities designed especially for those with Parkinsonís. To this end, the group is taking cues from Sarasotaís Parkinson Place, a pioneering center opened just a year ago under the aegis of the Parkinson Research Foundation, and dedicated to offering an extensive menu of daily group activities geared specifically to engage, educate, empower and energize those with Parkinsonís.

Tracee Hartman, Grand Villaís activities director, has agreed to accommodate the group in facilitating its long-range, comprehensive vision. Future meetings will be first Thursdays, 1:30 p.m., at the Grand Villa. Caregivers and friends are welcome to attend. For information, call Marcy McCall at 595-0918 or email theobetj@aol.com.
