I would like to thank our City Hall Staff for accommodating our March 7th special “Virtual Dementia Tour” meeting.  We were so pleased to be able to offer this tour to the community.  For those who were unable to attend this event, you may contact Christine Jackson, our “Tour Guide” to participate in a future tour at:  903-240-4769. 
The city as well as the Big Sandy Hawkins Journal has been so very helpful and supportive of our efforts in the community.  This illness is becoming epidemic – it is the 6th leading cause of death in our country and the only one that is increasing rather than decreasing. 
Educating the public about Alzheimer’s and supporting research to conquer this disease is  the ongoing goal of the Alzheimer’s Association.  For further information and services provided by the association, please contact Kathy Weeks, Director of East Texas Services at:  903-353-7707.
Thank you again for your continued support in this endeavor.
