You’re Invited to Family Day

The Library Memory Project Offers A Family Day Event

This September, the Library Memory Project is offering their first Family Day event, an afternoon outing on September 29 for those living with dementia and their family members of all ages. Held at Retzer Nature Center in Waukesha, Family Day will feature a planetarium show, live animals, and refreshments. It is free to attend, though attendees must register by September 20.

“We decided to host a Family Day event because we wanted to offer an opportunity for families who are going through the journey of memory loss to come together through a fun, shared experience,” says Angela Meyers, Inclusive Services Coordinator at the Bridges Library System, which facilitates the Library Memory Project.

As one caregiver said about attending the memory cafes with her husband, “It’s nice to walk in and see someone you know so you don’t feel alone. And they make you feel welcome.”

If you or a loved one is living with memory loss, you are welcome to join us at the Family Day event.
