Brooklyn Parkinson Group honored Dance for PDsm founding Dance leader Misty Owens, at a party on June 16. Misty is moving back to Dallas, her home town, but will continue to teach for Dance for PDsm training workshops and give presentations.
Misty promises to come back to Brooklyn to teach class, as often as she can. BPG participant Leonore Gordon created a commemorative book of appreciation that was filled with poetry, art, photography, remembrances, all lovingly created by Dance for PD students. BPG caterer Richard Malanga created a huge, spectacular (and delicious) cake replete with a bouquet of live yellow roses and outline of the state of Texas on top.
At Misty’s send off, BPG also celebrated Support Group Committee Chair Judy Rosenblatt’s birthday, with song, well wishes and a piece of the equally delicious and fancifully decorated cake that Richard made for Judy.
