Mid-Willamette Valley Monthly Marketing Update - April 2016
Guide  |  Website  |  Network Events  |  Jobs

Dear ,

This year has been so busy and we are noticing, that like us, you are more mobile than ever. We're trying to meet your changing needs with technology when possible and would like to highlight a few of these important developments.

Recently, it became easier for everyone to sign their ad reservation online without needing a printer and fax machine causing a huge jump in earlybird reservations. This newsletter has become more mobile friendly and event dates can now be added to your calendar with just a few clicks. We've also started making the RSVPs for events available online and will continue to do so. Lastly, at the sponsor breakfast, many people asked if we would have a phone app soon and Claudette is now working on it.

Beyond these developments, our next hospital CEU event for Case Managers is coming up and will be at Legacy Emanuel Medical Center. While all spaces are filled for this event, we are working on the next round of events so, stay posted for more information. We look forward to networking with you at our upcoming Senior Service Network Meeting on April 27th!

   Alzheimer's Association: Memories In The Making



MAY 13 Alzheimer's Association: Memories in the Making
5:30 PM The Sentinel Hotel
614 SW 11th Ave, Portland

Join us for an evening of art, food, fun, and a silent auction highlighting the Alzheimer's Association Memories in the Making program.


200+ attendance expected for cocktails, seated dinner, art, and silent auction.


Proceeds go to support the Alzheimer’s Association Memories in the Making (MIM) Program which works to pair trained art facilitators with those suffering from Alzheimer’s in an effort to help them find comfort, achievement, and accomplishment while living with memory loss. MIM gives people with dementia the ability to paint their thoughts, emotions, and memories so that art becomes their voice.

The only thing certain is that there will be change. Every market, every meeting, every contact shifts a bit with each encounter. Just when I think I have a plan and course set- things change. There is new competition, new team members, family plans, and conflicting schedules. It can be overwhelming to look at all that must get done in one week- so I start with what I cant get done right now, and then next, and then next...
