The summer solstice is the longest day of the year, the first day of summer and the official kickoff for warm-weather fun in the northern hemisphere.
Every year the Alzheimer’s Association observes The Longest Day as it sheds light on the darkness of living with Alzheimer’s disease. Country Meadows has special teams at every one of its campuses that plan special events to mark The Longest Day and raise money for a great cause.
Some fundraising events held on our campuses to raise money on The Longest Day include:
Residents took part in a purple butterfly scavenger hunt, enjoyed live music and good food.
Forks in Easton
Residents at Forks in Easton donned superhero capes and held an unofficial walk around campus to raise funds.
Residents and co-workers participated in an on-campus fundraising walk followed by a purple lemonade social.
Residents and co-workers had a great time supporting Alzheimer’s research at a campus carnival. Along with good food and fun, carnival-goers could take turns tossing balls trying to drop managers into a dunk tank.
Co-workers held a benefit car wash and partnered with a local radio station to promote the event during a live broadcast on campus. The local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association invited co-workers to a Pittsburgh Pirates major league baseball game to present a check.
