Big Stone Area Memory Loss Connection

Big Stone Area Memory Loss Connection

Get connected!  This group has been meeting, researching, and in general, working very hard to bring memory loss awareness to Big Stone County.  We (MNbump) will be adding additional information and links to this page to assist this group in getting their information out – connecting you to the resources that you are looking for.

The Memory Cafe meets two times per month

A special upcoming activity at the Memory Cafe will be on April 13th at 1:00 in the lower level of the library – Mary will be bringing her record player and participants are asked to bring retro records to share and enjoy!  (33, 45, or 78 records are welcome)

 


The Ortonville Library has excellent resources that have been grouped together for a fast & easy locate!   The activity packets can be checked out along with great books for reference.  (Click on the photo below for a larger view)


This group also provides a monthly informational article in the Ortonville Independent & Northern Star newspapers and they are regular guests with special speakers on the KDIO Radio morning show!  (we will be uploading the audio to KDIO program after each session to our online resources, here on the MNbump!  (thanks Julie!)

Watch for more updates & information to be posted as available.
