If you like to shop at Marshall’s, please join me in supporting the national Alzheimer’s Association awareness drive, March 3 – 16. When you patronize Marshall’s this week or next, you can make a donation and fill out a card that will be displayed in the store. The more cards, the greater the attention and amount of dollars raised to find a cure.
On Wednesday, April 10, at Quinsigamond Community College (QCC) in Worcester, the Alzheimer’s Association Massachusetts/New Hampshire Chapter will host their Fourth Annual Focus on Research. Dr. Brent Forester will speak about the latest advances in Alzheimer’s research, including break-through PET scan technology that gives a visual picture of Alzheimer’s Disease in the brain. Registration and a reception begin at 6:15 p.m.; the presentation starts at 7:00 p.m. Email Christine Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org, to reserve your seat.
Planning ahead, you can register now for this fall’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, to be held on Sunday, September 29, at QCC. To sign up as a walker or a volunteer, please visit www.alzwalkmanh.org. In just a few weeks, I will be registering our team, DFA on the Move, and you can join us in walking.
I hope to see you there.
