There will be a host of great local vendors to check out (our pals Recess Coffee, to name one!); goodie bags to take home, a free gift basket raffle, and grilling outdoors.

The Forget-Me-Nots Chorus: 1 year later

In case you missed it, Francine shared the progress of the Forget-Me-Nots Chorus through a video at the DISHES dinner in February. 

"As a community, we must work together to conquer dementia. We must be the leaders and look at aging straight in the face, doing all we can to help our seniors be as productive as possible, for as many years as possible. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for voting for my project."

Francine won the 2014 DISHES mini-grant for her project, the Forget-Me-Nots chorus. You, Syracuse, made this work possible. Thank you. Everyone is welcome to attend one of the upcoming concerts, on April 26th, or June 28th. And thanks for your incredible work in the community, Francine!
