Her struggle to stay connected to who she once was is frightening, heartbreaking, and inspiring."

Many of us are caring for individuals who have Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias. Our meetings consist of education, guest speakers, sharing, and prayer. We share caregiving approaches we’ve tried and discuss what works, what doesn’t, and how we cab care for ourselves during these challenging times.

Westgate Park
25.00 for registration & a shirt 15.00 for just walk

We are looking forward to a wonderful 2015 Walk as we celebrate its 23rd anniversary in our community! Your part helps make it possible for us to continue and expand the educational and support services to local Alzheimer victims, their caregivers, and family members.

At our annual event, walkers participate in their choice of a 1-mile, 3-mile or 5-mile route in memory or in honor of Alzheimer patients, caregivers, family and friends. Many participate as part of a team, wearing identical t-shirts and making the event a party. Others walk as individuals, part of a family, or with their pets. Participants soon find that it is more than just a walk to benefit Alzheimer’s. Local eateries donate wonderful barbecue, dessert treats, juices and more. Other businesses participate by donating door prizes that make the event seem like a celebration.

Wondering how to participate in A Walk to Remember? There are lots of ways!
1. Be a sponsor
2. Form a team and walk or just take up donations. (You don't have to walk.)
3. Walk as an individual
4. Prefer not to walk in the event? Volunteers are always welcome to help with behind the scenes activities!

Barbara Mann: Transformation & Evolution

Wiregrass Museum of Art and Conference Center
Barbara Mann has had over 35 years’ experience as a metal and jewelry artist. Her work represents highly rendered visions of movement within nature. Of her work, Mann says, “The objects that I make tell a story, relate a concept or record an observation. The subjects that interest me seem to remain constant: nature, science theories and discoveries, the beauty of form, materials and detail. The visual and physical elements in the immediate environment are starting points. The process of making an object is pure pleasure. I strive for excellent craftsmanship and the ability to distill a discovery of seeing or perceiving.”

She graduated from the University of Georgia with BFA and MFA degrees and has taught for many years as an adjunct instructor at UGA Lamar Dodd School of Art. She has also taught with the UGA Studies Abroad Program in Cortona, Italy and in Costa Rica; through the UGA continuing Education program; and with Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. In addition, she has conducted numerous workshops throughout the Southeast.

Mann’s work is in many collections including The Mint Museum of Art, The Georgia Museum of Art, The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center, and The Committee for the Olympic Development of Atlanta, and Nations Bank. Barbara is currently president of the Athens Metal Arts Guild.

Mann will also be hosting a Cuttlefish Casting Workshop on Saturday, October 17, 10am – 4pm. For more information on the casting worshop, click on this link to our website: http://www.wiregrassmuseum.org/cuttlefish-casting-workshop-with-metal-artist-barbara-mann/

4th Emergency Preparedness Fair and Safety Saturday

The Enterprise Civic Center
The Coffee County EMA/HS Office and the Coffee County Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), is hosting the “4th Annual Emergency Preparedness Fair and Safety Saturday” Saturday, September 5, 2015 at our new location - the Enterprise Civic Center - from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The fun filled family day event is designed to raise awareness about home safety and individual emergency preparedness.

The preparedness and safety event features several awareness displays and demonstrations to help citizens see how a few simple steps now can increase safety and emergency preparedness in homes, businesses and communities throughout the county. Emergency response vehicles and resources, such as the mobile command post, hazardous materials vehicles and the Enterprise Fire Department’s “Fire Safety House” will be on site. We will also have a “Don’t Text and Drive Simulator” sponsored by Mitchell Hyundai and State Farm Insurance that graphically shows the dangers of texting while driving.

Free safety preparedness “how to” literature such as how to build an emergency supply kit and develop a family emergency communications plan will be distributed. Information regarding fire safety and prevention as well as information on preparing for natural disasters such as floods and tornadoes will be available. Upcoming training opportunities which promote community preparedness such as first aid, CPR and storm spotting classes will be announced.

The Emergency Preparedness Fair and Safety Saturday is part of National Preparedness Month (September) which is a “whole community” approach to disaster response. As part of the month’s activities, CC EMA and CC CERT and one our corporate sponsors, Mitchell Hyundai, are sponsoring a poster contest open to all children in grades 1-6 who live in Coffee County. The theme for this year is “Don’t Wait – Communicate: Make Your Emergency Plan Today,” focusing on taking simple, but potentially life-saving steps to enhance preparedness. The following rules concerning the posters must be followed:
• Posters can be NO LARGER than 11 x 14
• Posters should be submitted on quality poster illustration board or heavy paper
• Entries must use crayons, magic markers, or colored pencils only. Posters with stencils, computer-generated or traced letters or images, or commercial stick on letters or images will not be accepted.
• Posters must have the following clearly printed or attached to the back:
o Contestant’s name
o Age
o Grade Level
o School name and address
o Parent/guardian names, address, and telephone number
Poster must arrive at the CC EMA Office no later than September 4th to be considered for this contest.
