June 8, 2017: Hemmings announces fundraising effort on behalf of Alzheimer's Association - Bennington Banner

By Cherise Madigan

BENNINGTON — For those living with Alzheimer's or dementia, every day can feel like the longest day of the year.

That is the message that the Vermont Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association, in conjunction with Bennington's Hemmings Motor News, hopes to convey with their fundraising effort The Longest Day this summer.

"The Longest Day references the summer solstice, but we also use it symbolically to emphasize that for those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers, every day is the longest day," said Jane Mitchell, development director for the Vermont Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association. "What people do is take something that they love, or something that a loved one with the disease enjoyed, and create an event around it."

The summer solstice, on June 21, is the longest day of the year and occurs when the sun is directly above the Tropic of Cancer. In support of the Alzheimer's Association, Hemmings will dedicate their June cruise-in events as part of their fundraising and awareness activities for The Longest Day.
