June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month

The people behind the Alzheimer’s movement have done an excellent job in making the awareness of the affliction. When I was growing up it was referred to as hardening of the arteries. I was told the story of my grandfather locking his step dad in a small one room house every night. My great grandfather had started to wander around at night and the home was a block from the Apple River. It sounds cruel today but it was more the norm back then. Grandpa’s plan back fired though as my great grandfather decided to light a wood burning stove in the house. The problem is that is was an oil stove. That was it and my great grandfather was sent to a home.

Those whose life has been touch by Alzeimer’s or another dementia should be aware of the local support group that meets on a regular basis. The next meeting is Tuesday, June 20 from 2:30-3:30PM at the Owatonna Public Library. You can find out more about this group by calling Deb at (507)-213-1305.

There will be a new kickoff to Ellendale Days this year. A 2.5 Run/Walk for Alzheimer’s will be held on Thursday, June 22 starting at 6PM from the Ellendale Liquor Store. The cost is $100 per family or $35 per person. You can learn more by calling Allison at (507)-383-6254.
