continued support throughout the year. Please keep supporting them in 2018; they need us as much as we need them. New on the horizon, OANY will be sending out 2018 Calendars to all optical stores in Nassau and Suffolk counties. This is being made possible by our generous sponsors. We This Thanksgiving in addition to being thankful for my family and friends, I had something new to be thankful for. I was very pleased to see the increased attendance at our November meeting and for that I am thankful to our members. Thank you to Mark Cohen for a clever CE Credit…BTW...I would have opted for two separate pairs as well. (If you are confused by my statement, come to our monthly meeting). Keeping in the spirit of being thankful I can’t begin to thank all of our sponsors for their hope the feedback will be tremendous and this will become a yearly event. The board is confident this exposure will introduce us to a broader audience and we will gain new membership. A win-win for all! Our December meeting will be very exciting with Sight MD presenting what will be quite an informative CE Credit. I hope to see a big turnout at our December meeting on Thursday, December 21. Have a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
