I have had two speaking engagements in the last couple of weeks -- thanks to my new friends in Madison Georgia and the First Presbyterian group here in Athens. I so appreciate you asking me to speak to your groups and meeting all of you. Thanks for wanting to learn more about Alzheimer's and helping to spread the word about this dreaded disease.
A dear friend of mine, Kathy Davis, is holding an Alzheimer's fundraising awareness event at her church on Saturday October 11th. It will be held at Moon's Grove Baptist Church, 1985 Moon's Grove Church Road in Colbert Georgia from 11am to 1 p.m. The event will feature jewelry sales (all proceeds go to the Walk to End Alzheimer's), gel nail manicures, raffles and lots of fun for everyone. Information about Alzheimer's will be available. Also, my friend Kathy will be walking with us this year in the Walk To End Alzheimer's....see below. She is asking everyone that comes to the event to bring a framed photo in honor or in memory of someone they know that has (had) Alzheimer's. Kathy wants to then take a photo of all the photos gathered at the event and carry this photo with her in the walk. She also wants families to sign a t-shirt she will wear on the day of the walk to remember and honor all of her friends and their families that are dealing with Alzheimer's. It sounds like a great event and I would encourage all of those living out near Colbert to take a few minutes and go by Moon's Grove Baptist Church on Saturday October 11th and say hello to Kathy and do your part to End Alzheimer's. 1985 Moon's Grove Church Road - Colbert, GA 30628 - 706-7
