To Be Determined

If you have any difficulties joining the meeting, please email jeffdeutsch@weplan.com for help.

To adapt to the pandemic, the Society’s self-help groups are not holding in-person group meetings through at least September 30th.  As a result, we’ve temporarily “adjusted our style” to allow men with MS to stay connected.

Our meetings are an open discussion, so grab a cold drink and join us!

MAINTAIN Physical Distancing but be Socially Close to Stay Connected.

The online/virtual meeting format allows us to continue interacting in a casual way and we’re doing it again in August.

Even if you’ve never attended 70/Four70 MS Men’s Self-help Group in person and/or missed the online/virtual pandemic version of the monthly meetings, make it a priority to join us this August for casual conversation about what we’re thinking, feeling, and doing while practicing physical distancing.

NOTE: Be sure to come back to this site for updates.

See you soon!
Jeff, George, Kirk

All input regarding our meetings is greatly appreciated.  Just email Kirk and George at 70four70@weplan.com

ABOUT

This small informal all male self-help group of men diagnosed with multiple sclerosis discusses all aspects of our Multiple Sclerosis and meets the 1st Saturday of most months from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.± in the Conference Room of Murphy Creek Golf Course located at 1700 S. Old Tom Morris Road, Aurora, CO 80018.

We see the value to our health via social interaction and we focus on interaction during the meeting.

This group puts a high value on the social interaction between men who have MS.  Although from time-to-time we have a speaker, most of the time the men share what’s on their minds and how they’ve dealt with issues raised by others and suggestions for coping.

If you are a man with MS and at least 18-years of age, you already have a membership card, so please join us!

Sponsored by CO-WY Chapter of the National MS Society.

 

No whining: we approach MS from a man’s point of view and it’s not a pity-party.

Our discussions are informal in an open meeting atmosphere. The men in this small group share what’s on their minds and how they’ve dealt with issues raised by others and suggestions for coping.

Regular meetings are on the first Saturday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00± a.m. and when physical distancing ends, we meet in the conference room between the Pro Shop and the Murphy Creek Tavern & Restaurant at Murphy Creek Golf Course, 1700 S. Old Tom Morris Road, Aurora, CO 80018. [map]

History:
Murphy Creek Golf Course
On 3 August 2013, the 70/Four70 MS Men’s Group began meeting on the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 am in the conference room between the Pro Shop and the Murphy Creek Tavern and Restaurant at the Murphy Creek Golf Course, 1700 S. Old Tom Morris Road, Aurora, CO 80018. [map]

Sponsored by the Colorado-Wyoming Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, this small informal all male group discusses all aspects of what it means to be a man with the disease we have in common. In many cases the usual roles of husband/family member, employed individual or bread-winner, maybe even driver, have radically changed.

Our discussions are informal in an open meeting atmosphere of mutual understanding. The men in the group share what’s on their minds and how they’ve dealt with issues raised by others and suggestions for coping.

Any man with MS and at least 18-years of age, already has a membership card, so please join us!

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be . . . amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
― Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl
