An invitation to Walk For Alzheimer’s

To the editor;

Come Walk with us!

We are now a team of three organizing this year’s Walk for Alzheimer’s: Liz Gilbertson, Michelle Johnson, and Margaret Houben. Watch for us at Barriere AG Foods, selling our raffle tickets.

There are some awesome prizes this year. First prize is two nights and breakfast at Montana Hills Guest Ranch in Bridge Lake (worth $446). Second prize is a 3.5cu.ft. compact fridge (worth $219). Third prize is a full day of whitewater rafting in Clearwater (worth $179). Fourth prize is four hours of whitewater rafting in Clearwater (worth $115).

On May 5, the IG Wealth Management Walk For Alzheimer’s takes place at the Senior’s Hall in Barriere. Registration starts at 10 a.m., the Walk starts at 11 a.m., and lunch will be ready at noon as the walkers return. At the hall we will also have some great silent auction items, as well as the usual table full of door prizes. This event is a great way to have some fun, all while raising funds for a cause that affects nearly everyone in B.C. And remember, all monies raised in B.C. stays in B.C.

This year our honouree is Lorraine Chambers, who had been a caregiver for her husband. (Her story was printed in a previous issue of the Star/Journal.)

We’d like to encourage everyone to come and join us at the Walk. Bring the kids, your dogs, or form a team with your co-workers. You can walk the route, run it, bike it, or even ride your skateboard or scooter.

We hope to see you there, on May 5.

Liz Gilbertson,

Michelle Johnson, Margaret Houben

Barriere, B.C.
