Walk to End Alzheimer’s set for Sept. 27

The Launch Party for the 2014 Warren Walk to End Alzheimer’s was held recently at Perkins Restaurant. New teams are forming, and several teams acquired additional walkers. Members of the walk committee are continuing to contact sponsors, former teams, individuals and volunteers for this year’s walk, to be held Saturday, Sept. 27.

Refreshments were provided by Perkins, and the committee awarded door prizes. A joint fundraiser is being planned by distributing forget-me-nots in the community. Molly Reichard, constituent events coordinator for the northwestern area of Alzheimer’s Association, displayed a plaque to be presented to the Sena Kean Manor Team, Smethport. They were the top team participating and contributing in last year’s Warren Walk. She also distributed fundraising materials and registration packets, and updated the committee on current walk information.

The next committee meeting will be held on Thursday, July 24, at the Harbor Church. Anyone interested in the walk, by forming or joining a team, or volunteering is welcome to attend.

For more information, contact Laurie Sheriff, walk co-chairman, at Golden Living Kinzua, 726-0820.
