On Sunday, June 7th many Islanders got together to take part in the annual Walk For Alzheimer's. Funds raised through this event support the Alzheimer's Society's programs and services for those living with dementia on Prince Edward Island.
This year MRSB accounting technician Marlene Webster set up a refreshment stand near her Charlottetown home to give participants a boost during the Walk. Thanks to Marlene for taking the initiative, and to all participants for making a difference in the lives of those living with dementia and Alzheimer's on PEI.

This year marks the 22nd anniversary of the Big Brothers Big Sisters of PEI Dream Cottage Draw. This annual fundraiser supports various programs that help Island children reach their full potential thrugh mentoring and fun. Each year tickets are sold on a newly-built summer cottage, just waiting to be enjoyed by an Island family. And in case the lucky winner has nowhere to put this amazing prize, they also have the choice to receive $65,000 in cash!
Through the month of June the MRSB accounting and bookkeeping teams are doing their part by selling tickets at the cottage Monday to Friday evenings. We've all had a great time chatting with fellow volunteers and telling visitors about the many features of this year's prize cottage.
There is still lots of time to drop by the Dream Cottage at the NEW Canadian Tire parking lot between 1:00am and 7:00pm Monday to Friday, 10:00am to 6:00pm on Saturday or 12:00pm to 6:00pm Sundays. Too far away? Just call 1-877-411-DRAW (3729) to purchase your ticket(s) by phone.
