Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias gradually diminish a person’s ability to communicate. Communication with a person with Alzheimer’s requires patience, understanding and good listening skills. This program discusses strategies that can help both you and the person with dementia understand each other better.

The Question is…..WHERE’S “CUPCAKE”?

It seems that our little mascot friend “Cupcake”has been left high and dry,( and now he has two trunks too!) But Where? We last saw him enjoying a nice lunch with his besties. He can’t have gone far.
Help us find him and win a free ice cream cone from STEWART’S SHOP’S . Kid’s, we need to know where this picture was taken. Submit your answer at the Hunter Library. The winner will be picked at random from a group of all correct answers.

“Cupcake” our mascot, is seen here enjoying a pleasant lunch with friends. Kids, tell us, WHERE IS CUPCAKE?

Our mascot “Cupcake” used the last few weeks wisely, finishing nearly all the books on it’s summer list. However, all that reading can make a young elephant hungry.
Here  we see “Cupcake” sharing a delicious lunch with his friends from a nearby village. They always include an extra cupcake with their meal. Kids, do you know where “Cupcake” is ?
Submit your answer at the Hunter Public Library on Main St. in Hunter. We will choose a winner in a random drawing.
The prize is an ice cream cone from Stewart’s Shops.
