The proclamation reads as follows: Whereas, Alzheimer’s Disease is a brain disorder that involves the part of the brain that controls thoughts, memory, language, reasoning and logic and seriously affects the patient’s ability to carry out even the simplest daily activities, and- Whereas, approximately 5 million Americans (and over 100,000 Arkansans) are affected by Alzheimer’s Disease, and that number is expected to climb drastically with the Baby Boomers coming of age: and- Whereas, increasing awareness enables the Alzheimer’s Disease is the only form of dementia that is irreversible, and- Whereas, increasing awareness enables the Alzheimer’s Arkansas Programs & Services to continue to provide services to families and caregivers of individuals affected by Alzheimer’s Disease.

Now Therefore, Saturday, September 14, 2013 is officially proclaimed Alzheimer’s Awareness Day in the City of Fairfield Bay, Arkansas, and I urge all men and women to become aware of services provided by “Arkansas Alzheimer’s Serving Arkansans” and also urge you to attend the local Alzheimer’s Walk at Woodland Mead Park on that day to raise money for research to find a cure for Alzheimer’s Disease. The Proclamation signed by Paul Wellenberger, Mayor of Fairfield Bay.
