From Special Reports

The Coweta Association of Retired Educators (CARE) will “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” on Tuesday, March 9, at the Brown’s Mill Battlefield Historic Site in Newnan.

Carolyn Turner, a member of the Brown’s Mill Board of Directors, will lead a tour of the historic grounds at 11:30 a.m. Lunch will follow at approximately 12:30 p.m.

“Walk to End Alzheimer’s” is Georgia Retired Educators Association’s 2020-2021 humanitarian project.  CARE’s March 9 meeting will be a fundraiser and picnic to honor this cause.  This year donations will be divided between the local unit’s scholarship fund, which awards a total of $3000 in annual scholarships, and the Alzheimer’s Foundation, to which Coweta’s retired educators contributed over $500 in March 2020.

“We can reach our goals, or even surpass them, if each member donates $25 or more,” said CARE Vice President Sherry Taylor, speaking on behalf of the leadership team.  “We are encouraging participants to follow their hearts.”

The group will begin gathering at 11 a.m. before the tour starts at 11:30 a.m. 

“If you are unable to do the walk,” CARE President Sherry Warren has told members, “just enjoy one another’s company at the pavilion.”

CARE members and their guests should bring their own lawn chairs, as well as their own picnic lunches and snacks.  Bottles of water will be provided.

Brown’s Mill Battlefield Historic Site is located at 155 Millard Farmer Road in Newnan.  In case of inclement weather, the event will be rescheduled for March 16.
