An arthritis support group will meet for the first time Monday, Nov. 29 in the Community Room at the Talbot Belmond Public Library. The meeting will start at 10 a.m.

  The group has been named PANG, Positive Arthritis News Group, and is open to arthritis sufferers and their caregivers.

  PANG was started by Gwen Harvey. She said it will be a welcoming group that “will allow us to feel less alone with our diagnosis; to share how the disease is affecting us; to share ways we have learned to adapt and cope; and to learn from the experiences of others.” PANG hopes to have experts in the field speak at some of the meetings.
