To adapt to the pandemic, the Society’s self-help groups are being asked to “remain meeting digitally and refrain from coming together in-person through December 31st.” As a result, we’ve “adjusted our style” to allow men with MS to stay connected — for now. We hope and intend this to be temporary because we believe physical/social closeness is important to good health.

IN JANUARY, WE WILL PROBABLY STOP HOLDING ONLINE MEETINGS.

In person or online, our meetings are open discussions and for now, grab some breakfast and join us online!

Prior to the pandemic, we held meetings in the Conference Room of Murphy Creek Golf Course at 1700 S. Old Tom Morris Road, Aurora, CO 80018. We hope in-person meetings will resume sometime in 2021.  Until then, please join us online. We look forward to seeing you online or in-person when the regular physical location meetings resume.

To inquire, confirm, and/or verify, email George & Kirk at 70four70@weplan.com RSVP is not necessary but appreciated.

MAINTAIN Physical Distance 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 at least through December 2020.

Even if you’ve never attended 70/Four70 MS Men’s Self-help Group in person and/or missed any of the online/virtual pandemic version of the monthly meetings, make it a priority to join us this month 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!

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

FOR NOW . . .

Maintain Physical Distancing
but be Socially Close and

Going Forward

ABOUT

This small informal all male self-help group of men diagnosed with multiple sclerosis discusses all aspects of our Multiple Sclerosis and began meeting 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 importance to our health of social interaction and we focus on this aspect of life during the meeting.

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 in-person meetings were on the first Saturday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00± a.m. and when physical distancing ends, we hope to again 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
