Program Update
November 3, 2020

 

First and foremost, I want to thank all our members, their leaders, and the TBMP staff for their continued support during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Program would not exist without you, your support, and your continued efforts to maintain and progress towards your goals. Your courage, hard work, and tenacity are forever appreciated. We have faced these challenging times together and we will come out of it stronger and better.

I want to thank you all for your concern and well wishes during my recovery. I am healing and regaining my strength. Thank you, too, for your cards and notes and your continued prayers and encouragement. I am pleased to report that I am back on my feet and feeling my old self. I am ready to jump back in as soon as the pandemic circumstances will permit.

You have been supportive of each other during this difficult time. I am thrilled with how you have worked to encourage each other and want to congratulate you all for sticking to your individual plans and for remaining in contact with each other. I want you to know that TBMP will all be back bigger and stronger once the pandemic is under control and we can resume our normal program activities.

We have learned much over the past nine months, including how to continue to connect (remotely) and stay in contact with one another for that key support we each need to stay focused on our goals. I want to let you know that when we return to normal operations, we will be making some needed changes, but more on that will be announced in the coming months.

I want to thank all of the TBMP staff and group leaders for their support and dedication to the program. I want to say a special word of thanks to Susan Kaufman, Midge Walter, Vera Holden, and Helene Lees for their contributions during the pandemic; their efforts have sustained the program during the forced shutdown of in-person operations.

Continue to encourage, support, and help one another to remain hopeful during this time of social distancing. Remember to let your leaders know that you support them and appreciate their efforts to keep your groups functioning in these challenging times.

Stay hopeful, remember that each of you has someone to look to for support, and keep reaching for your goal.

Thank you again for your support and encouragement!
