Racine native Alyssa Bohm was crowned Miss Wisconsin 2019 in June 2019.  She graduated from the UW-Whitewater in 2018 with a Bachelor of Science degree in education and is employed as a cross-categorical teacher at J.I. Case High School in Racine, working with special needs students.  She will pursue a master’s degree in education administration.

During Alyssa’s year as Miss Wisconsin, she promotes her platform, “Embracing Special Needs, Building Inclusive Communities”, while serving as a goodwill ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

This memory cafe' will be held at the Firemen's Park on Park Road (under shelter), south of the library.  Masks are recommended; we have a limited supply for those who need one. We will social distance at picnic tables. Bottled water and prepackaged snacks will be offered. The program will also be live-streamed on the Library Memory Project facebook page for those who choose not to attend in person.

The Lake Country Libraries Memory Project is a partnership between five public libraries in Waukesha County with a mission to provide programs to those affected by memory loss, Alzheimer’s disease, and other forms of dementia. A main component of the memory project is a monthly social gathering for those with early stage dementia and a care partner, called memory cafés.

First-time attendees should contact the Alzheimer's Association of Southeastern Wisconsin, at 800-272-3900 to register for this FREE event.  Regular attendees should contact the library directly.
