Walk to support Alzheimer’s research



BAR HARBOR — An Alzheimer’s walk will be hosted by Birch Bay Retirement Village on Saturday, Sept. 10, from 10-11:30 a.m. rain or shine. This community event raises awareness by remembering, honoring and cherishing those affected by Alzheimer’s disease.

Everyone is invited; preregistration is not required. Walkers should sign in at Birch Bay Village, 25 Village Inn Road, Hulls Cove, starting at 10 a.m. then walk around the village’s quarter-mile track with scenic views of Frenchman Bay.

Walkers will receive a wristband and have a chance to win raffle prizes. Water and snacks will be provided. Walkers are encouraged to wear purple to show their support. Donations to support Alzheimer’s research will be accepted.
