Kudos to the Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area and all who helped in organizing and coordinating the recent Memory Walk/Run event.

I have been blessed to be able to volunteer for many years with others in the early morning set-up of the sponsoring agency booths for the gathering. It was great to see so many young folks volunteering at the function for service hours, but more importantly, to give back to the community. What a delight to be able to also see the LSU ladies’ basketball team and Nikki Caldwell, the coach, supporting the event!

After the race, it was great to go nearby to the PMAC to join the Downtown Kiwanis Club of Baton Rouge for its annual Pancake Fest — it was neat to see the Channel 9 WAFB emeritus weatherman Michael Graham greeting folks like he usually does. Of course, I got some of the great Manda sausage, hogshead cheese and Kleinpeter milk, to boot!
