H2U at Good Samaritan Hospital provides many opportunities to learn about good health via lectures, support groups, online resources, etc., as well countless opportunities to get out and be social. All activities are planned to keep you mentally and physically active, which also promotes good health.
In additional to national H2U discounts and valuable health information, H2U at Good Samaritan Hospital has an extensive volunteer group committed to creating wonderful events for its members, including affordable day trips organized by the Trips & Tours Committee.
Volunteers of the Social Committee collaborate to create a variety of activities, including an annual picnic, holiday party and Valentines Day lunch. There is also a Lunch Bunch group that meets for lunch at local restaurants once a month. A monthly Scrabble game in the cafeteria is fun way to spend a few hours with friends old and new.
Every other month, there is a General Meeting in the hospital auditorium, featuring very interesting speakers of all types. Some speakers are informative and others just plain fun. Just prior to each general meeting, new trips & tours are announced (prior to notification going out to general membership in the monthly newsletter) and early sign-ups occur.
The second and fourth Fridays of each month feature FREE MOVIES in the Good Sam Auditorium. H2U volunteers review and select the movies – most are very current, but a few classics are thrown in for good measure. In addition to the large screen and comfortable seating, the movies often have closed captioning. Complimentary refreshments, including drink and snack, are offered.
The monthly award-winning H2U newsletter is packed with informative articles and includes a monthly calendar and comprehensive list all local chapter activities. The Good Sam Chapter has over 700 members, including a Board that meets monthly and works constantly to improve the range of activities we offer.
There are limitless opportunities for YOU to get involved as a member and/or volunteer. New ideas about trips, events and programs are always welcome.
