Special News

Effective immediately (01-29-2018) ALL Canton meetings have been cancelled
for the foreseeable future.
Due to unforeseen health circumstances,
Jacqui Scolaro (owner of Heart Transactions) will be shutting down her office. 
You are encouraged to attend the ASPIES monthly meetings held in Akron.
We hope to revisit this issue in April and once again start planning meetings or
other activities in the Canton area.

Of course, our other support is still
available to anyone via phone and email.
We wish Jacqui the best and offer our prayers of support.
