An increasing number of families are facing the impact of dementia, and as with most difficult journeys, the first steps are the hardest. The play "In the Garden" examines one family's experience on that journey as they confront their father's dementia. It will be presented free of charge at WITC-New Richmond, 1910 S. Knowles Ave., on Tuesday, May 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. The event is presented in partnership with the St. Croix Valley Foundation, the New Richmond Dementia Friendly Coalition and WITC-New Richmond.
Bobbi Pominville has been all about the music all of her life. She was a choral teacher in the Hudson School District for 34 years. And in retirement music is still central in her life as is her commitment to community. She is a member of five choirs including one that serves the Christian Community Home. She is involved in the Hudson Women's Club and is chairman of this year's Garden Tour. But her latest project is near and dear to her heart and she hopes a lot of people will feel the same way.
