Thank you Alzheimer’s Association Walkers

Denise Fosnaugh of the Alzheimer’s Association Greater Indiana Chapter sends this cheer to the people of Kokomo:

“Thanks Kokomo for a successful 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s.

“More than 475 Kokomo residents joined together to help raise more than $51,000 for Alzheimer’s care, support and research. We are extremely grateful for all your hard work, dedication and fundraising for Alzheimer’s.

“A special thanks to our Kokomo Walk major sponsors, Trilogy Health Services and Hoosier AM/FM Radio, our Patron sponsor, Reflections Memory Care and our Partner sponsors, Fairmont Rehabilitation, Sterling House of Kokomo, Community Howard Regional Health and St. Joseph Hospital.

“We thank our walk teams, volunteers, sponsors, emcees and flower speakers for spreading awareness in the community and supporting families and caregivers of loved ones with Alzheimer’s. Your participation in the 2013 Kokomo Walk to End Alzheimer’s has allowed us to continue to offer programs and support for the more than 120,000 Hoosiers living with Alzheimer’s. Thank you for helping us get one step closer to ending Alzheimer’s.”


Library staff assist First Assembly event

Loretta Sink, committee chairwoman of First Assembly of God's widows and widowers program, sends out this cheer to the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library:

“Twice a year, First Assembly of God Church in Kokomo hosts a luncheon for the widows and widowers in our congregation with a luncheon and entertaining program.

“On Oct. 29, Trisha Shively, head of the adult and teen department of the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library, joined us and assisted our guests in making a fall craft that they could then take home. She brought all the supplies needed and helped each one individually to complete their project.

“We want to thank Trisha and the library for their part in making a pleasant event for some of the widows and widowers in our community.”
