Parrot Points will be awarded too!

Thanks to all the volunteers at the Alzhiemers Walk

A note from Sunshine: 

I would like to thank those who came out yesterday to help with the Alzheimer’s Walk at Quinsigamond Community College.  It was a beautiful day and we all had fun.  I’m so glad that I am lucky to know so many wonderful parrot heads.  Although we had a smaller crowd of volunteers this year we were still able to work both the flower garden and a water station along the route.  Thanks to Sheryl, Angela and Deb for helping to collect all the signs once the walk was done – it was like you guys walked the route yourselves.

 
PHCoEM Members (donating time & money):  Deb Beauregard, Sheryl Davis & Cainen, parakeet – Sheryl’s grandson, Angela Gallant, Judy Holewa, Terri Weissenberg ($$)
 
WMPHC Members (Walkers):  Barbara & Scott Simpson
 
Duel Club (Time & Money):  Karen & Richard Feldeisen
 
Hope to see more happy faces next year.
 
Thanks.
Sunshine
