This year’s Hope Fest will have a couple new events on Saturday morning. Click Here for more details!
The Kid’s Fit challenge will take place on July 22, 2017, at Jefferson County Fair Park.
The Memorial Quilt Dedication Ceremony is a special remembrance service coordinated through the Rainbow Hospice Care Bereavement department to honor Rainbow Hospice Care patients who have died. Each year, memory quilts are made up of individual squares that families have created to honor their loved ones. The new memory quilt is revealed at this ceremony, and past quilts are also on display. The event will be held during the Hope Fest event at the Jefferson County Fair Park at 11am on Saturday, July 22nd, in the back of the Activity Building.
Join former Wisconsin Gov. Martin J. Schreiber as he shares lessons from his decade-plus journey as a caregiver for his wife, Elaine, who lives with Alzheimer’s disease. Governor Schreiber will candidly describe his challenges and missteps, and highlight how compassion and humor provide comfort to both caregiver and the person with dementia. His raw honesty and practical advice will inspire other caregivers to find patience, courage and love as they climb the Alzheimer’s mountain. My Two Elaines: Learning, Coping, and Surviving as an Alzheimer’s Caregiver will be available for purchase for $15. Net proceeds will be used to promote Alzheimer’s caregiver support programs.
Due to the predicted inclement weather this afternoon and evening, the Tomorrow’s Hope Volunteer meeting, scheduled for tonight, Wednesday, April 18 at 6:30 will be cancelled.
