June

Inaugural Dementia & Alzheimer’s Association Luncheon

Marcia Haynes was a great community advocate, and when her husband, Fred, was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2006, she became his advocate as well as his primary caregiver until his passing in 2014. Marcia’s passion for supporting dementia and Alzheimer’s research and caring for families and individuals impacted by more loss led her to establishing our association.

This luncheon will honor her vision, while also honoring our local advocates and organizations that share in Marcia’s mission.
