Sep 15, 2018 08:00 AM

The James O’Donnell Funeral Home of Hannibal has teamed up with the Alzheimer’s Association to sponsor the “Memory Garden” at this year’s Hannibal Area Walk to End Alzheimer’s. This year’s walk is Saturday, September 15th at 9:30 AM and begins at the Hannibal Armory and travels through Hannibal’s Sodalis Nature Preserve. Along the walk will be a beautiful “Memory Garden” for participants to experience and explore and learn more about how to help improve memory and overall health. Funeral director, Jim O’Donnell says “One of the best parts about helping our Community is listening to all of the wonderful stories and memories our Hannibal Community has to share. We believe that sharing stories and reliving memories is what keeps our legend alive.”

For a donation of $50 participants can personalize this memory garden with a team name, family name or even the name of a loved one. This is a unique opportunity to celebrate, remember and be healthy together.

Please contact the James O’Donnell Funeral Home in advance of the walk to personalize your Memory Sign and make your donation. For more information please call the funeral home at 573-221-8188 or visit us on Face book or at www.jamesodonnellfuneralhome.com
