Alzheimer dinner planned


On the heels of yet another successful Linda Johnston Memorial Alzheimer’s dinner this past Saturday in Rainy River, the Alzheimer Society of Kenora-Rainy River is gearing up to stage one here next month.
But instead of it being a “Chefs’ Charitable Dinner and Auction” as in past years, the organization will be trying something new with an event entitled “Spring Reflections—Building Memories Together.”
It is planned for Saturday, March 24 at La Place Rendez-Vous, with cocktails at 6 p.m. and dinner at 6:30.
The evening also will feature entertainment and a silent auction.
Tickets, which cost $65 each (a tax receipt for $35 will be issued) or $520 for a table of eight, are available now at Northwoods Gallery & Gifts here or by calling 1-800-682-0245.
You also can purchase them online at
Proceeds will go towards further promotion of Alzheimer awareness and education in both districts.
In other news, the local Alzheimer Society raised $676.20 at its annual book sale at Revco Carpet here back on Jan. 19-21.
Meanwhile, the organization also is asking for entries for its 2012-13 cash calendar photo contest.
The categories are nature, landscapes, gardens/flowers, and lake scenery.
To participate, contact the Alzheimer Society for an entry form at 1-800-682-0245, or via e-mail at or
