State Director Heidi Gibson thanks Governor Steve Bullock for making Alzheimer's the sole focus of the 47th Governor's Conference on Aging, May 12-14 in Helena. Governor Bullock honored 127 Centenarians at his luncheon, and 21 of them were present. Glad so many could make the trip! More than 350 people are expected to attend this year's conference co-hosted by the Montana Gerontology Society.
Missouri River Manor and The Lodge pause for a moment for their National Team Genesis group photo at the Great Falls Walk to End Alzheimer's at Gibson Park on September 13, 2014. They are already signed up as the Forget Me Nots for the 2015 walk, and captain Kourtney Harris says their fundraising plans are already underway this spring.
Dillard's and Tahari women's dress line teamed up to launch Tea with Tahari dress week to benefit the Alzheimer's Association. For every Tahari ASL dress purchased, a $15 donation was made.
Tahari provided tea cups with the Alzheimer's Assocation infographic and logo.

Longest Day chair Amy Peterson is pictured taking registrations for teams at the Volunteer Kickoff Party on April 1. She is still recruiting team captains from all over Montana who want to put together their own fundraiser between now and June 21.
Last year, teams across Big Sky Country played bridge all day, held a hike-a-thon, and others branded black baldy cows and moved them to summer pasture. A Billings team held a blues-themed event (with signature purple Forget Me Not drinks!) with a Texas band whose lead singer's grandmother battled Alzheimer's. All teams chose what they love to do from sun-up to sun-down. The possibilities are endless!
Call Amy for more info at 406.281.8455 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Sign up today and get your Longest Day t-shirt!
