Birch Hill Terrace Participants in the Walk to End Alzheimer's 2015

It was beautiful on Saturday, September 26, when the Birch Hill Bale Team gathered to participate in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's event held at Arms Park in Manchester. A big thank you goes out to everyone who walked, raised money, made a donation, bought a bracelet, paid to wear jeans on Fridays and supported the event in some way! I am happy to announce that our contribution to the cause was $2,932.00!!! This is more than double the amount we raised in 2014. Great work, team!
