Micaela Jensen, a volunteer with the Alzheimer Society of Kenora-Rainy River Districts, and Mayor Roy Avis held up a banner yesterday at the Civic Centre yesterday to mark January as “Alzheimer Awareness Month” in Fort Frances. Alzheimer Society events this month include the “Forget Me Not” fundraiser dinner set for this Saturday (Jan. 11) at La Place Rendez-Vous, a virtual dementia tour on Jan. 14, and the Linda Johnson Memorial Dinner in Rainy River on Jan. 25. There also is a “Coffee Break Challenge” all month. Sign up at www.alzheimer.ca/krr
