A big thank you to everyone who walked with and/or donated to our team (“Michael’s Marchers”) for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s which was held on October 5, 2019. Special thanks to KAAM 770 and Tara and Jeff Schiller who helped make us Grand Champions again. If you would still like to contribute to our walk team, click here. There has been some recent good news in our effort to find a cure as mentioned in our article below.

Our next free “Estate Planning Essentials” workshop will be on Saturday, November 9, 2019 from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
