REMEMBERING OTHERS — When it comes to a diagnosis of dementia, most people — both the patients and their family members — are left scared, confused and with no idea where to turn. For those who reside in Obion, Lake and Weakley counties, there is the Forget Me Not Foundation. It is a support group for those who have been diagnosed with any form of dementia and their family members. It helps others to find physical, mental and financial support and put people in touch with the resources they may not even know they need. The Forget Me Not Foundation’s board of directors is planning its main fundraising gala at 6 p.m. Nov. 10 at Discovery Park of America. The event will include dinner, dancing, a live and silent auctions. Coming together to discuss gala plans recently were (seated, from left) Forget Me Not Foundation vice president Jessie Robinson, keynote speaker and Alzheimer’s patient Beverly Haygood, her husband and caregiver Pat Haygood, (standing) foundation president and founder Beth Copeland, the foundation’s community liaison Sandra Roudenbush, foundation secretary Candice Chandler and the foundation’s medical director Brandi Rose. Chelsea Wilson (not pictured) is the foundation’s administrative coordinator.
