Teen 2018 Newsletter

Dear Southwest Family,

Happy New Year!!  I cannot believe it is the New Year! This last year has been filled with many blessings and I am so excited to see what 2018 will have in store for me! While it has been a busy year, filled with Southwest fun, holidays, family gatherings, and lots of laughs, it is so hard to believe that it’s 2018.

                  In the past few months I have been quite busy. With many events such as the Lawrence Ox Roast, Niles Apple Festival, the Blue Roof Church Compelled Outreach Halloween, St. Joseph Today Halloween, Blue Star Mothers of America, St. Joseph Today Luminary Festival, Southwest Goodwill Tour, St. Joseph Today Mannequin, Paw Paw Christmas Parade, Animal Aid Christmas Bazaar, St. Joseph Today Reindog Parade, Bangor Christmas Parade, Martin’s Snapshots with Santa as well as, preparing for two Southwest Goodwill Christmas Tours.  Community Service is the Southwest Michigan Scholarship Program focus.

                  In the next few months I will be preparing for and starting my speaking tour.  I will go around Southwest Michigan visiting the service clubs and explaining my platform, how and why I am involved with Alzheimer’s disease, and presenting information about this very complex disease. I am very excited to explain and discuss my platform that is so near and dear to my heart.
