Grandview Memorial Day Parade
Saturday, May 27 at 10:00 a.m.
The Discipleship Committee is again planning to have a float in this year’s Memorial Day Parade. The parade route begins at First Community Church and ends at Stevenson School. We will gather in front of the Elliot home starting at 8:30 a.m. to blow up balloons to pass out during the parade route. We will also have doughnuts and coffee for you to enjoy! We will have streamers and other decoration to put on bikes for both kids and adults alike so you can ride along with us. We also need people willing to walk along with us and pass out fun things to the kids along the parade route. Remember it’s all downhill so it’s a nice easy walk and a good way to get in your exercise for the day.
This is always a fun morning so please come and join us. There will be rides back up to the Elliot home after the parade so you can get back to your car. Please contact Kyme Rennick, Debbie Shealy, or Grace Parks. Remember if you don’t feel you can walk the route you are more than welcome to ride in our truck or cheer us along the parade route as we pass by. We look forward to seeing many of you on Saturday, May 27.

Understanding and Responding to Dementia Related Behaviors
June 7, 2017 at 7-9 in the Chapel
This program, which will be facilitated by Rose Beeson from the Alzheimer’s Association, will help caregivers to understand dementia-related behaviors.
During the middle stage of dementia, the person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver. These behaviors are a form of communication, and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia.
By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
- Identify common triggers for behaviors associated with dementia.
- Explain the process for assessing and identifying challenging behaviors.
- List strategies to address some common dementia-related behaviors.
Through practical information, resources, and interviews with experts, this program will help caregivers to address the challenges of dementia-related behavior.
Thanks to the Deacons, in advance, for bringing this program to Boulevard.
