TLA Hosts Guest Speaker

Angela Kalsbeek and her service dog Echo were guests at the March TLA meeting. TLA members learned about service animals, the training the animals go through, and so much more. The group had lots of questions for Angela as well. Echo demonstrated to the group how he assists Angela.  
TLA will be doing a recreational hike in Lakeside Park, while doing some park clean-up. The group will be meeting up at A&W to enjoy treats outside afterward. The date will be determined using a Doodle Poll.  
The next TLA meeting is Monday, April 26 at 7:00 pm at Rolling Meadows Meeting Room. If you are interested in being part of this group, please email tracy.keifenheim@wisc.edu. The meeting will also be offered via zoom. For the zoom info, please contact Tina Engelhardt at tina.engelhardt@wisc.edu.
