Alzheimer’s Disease is the ranked as the number 6 cause of death among Mainers. It alters the lives of the person with the disease and the lives and relationships of the family and friends of the person living with the disease.  Many of our Good Shepherd family have lived with the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s Disease or have died from it.  A few years ago, we decided that the best way we could honor the lives of our family and friends with ALZ was to work to support our Maine Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.  The Maine Chapter provides valuable resources and support on a 24/7 basis.  They are actively working with researchers to find a cure for this disease.  Each year we hold at least one fundraising event with the proceeds dedicated to the Maine Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association.  This year’s major event will be a yard sale/bake sale/plant sale on June 23 (raindate is June 30) from 9-1.  We invite you to come and shop, or simply stop by and make a donation.  Thank you for your interest and support!
