About this Event

Join our effort to raise awareness and fight the stigma of memory loss. This virtual Remember Project event for the Park Rapids area is part of our Fall 2020 tour. Watch the short play "Steering into the Skid," and participate in the Dementia-Friendly Communities movement, learn about resources in the Park Rapids community, and meet with others who are interested in learning more while supporting those who live with dementia.

Danette plays Amanda and Jim as Tim in this one act play that follows the story of a loving couple's journey with memory loss over the course of a year. Twelve short scenes, one for each month of the year, help audiences connect with the subtle changes that impact Tim and Amanda starting and ending on New Year's Eve.

Dates: Wednesday, 10/21/20 and Tuesday, 11/10/20

Times: 5:45 log in on 10/21 and 1:45 log in on 11/10
