Sharing Stories and Information in Hayward


I heard sad news on Sunday. Donna Venziano, owner and co-sponsor of the Memory Cafe, died in a car accident. She was a wonderful and caring woman and we will miss her greatly. Please keep her and her family in you prayers and thoughts.


I'm very excited about the future of Memory DayByDay!

Last Wednesday, I met with our new Board Members. I'm sure they are known by many of you in the San Leandro area.

Chad Pennebaker has accepted a position as Treasurer. He comes with much experience in serving on Boards of nonprofits and I look forward to learning from his experience.

Kati Knox has accepted a position as Secretary.  She is an avid supporter and promoter for all things dementia-related.  She is active in Purple Cities Alliance and I want very much to see if, together, we can change the face and stigma of dementia.

Dolores Sirca comes with 30 years of banking experience and a great compassion to help people with dementia.  She has been my go-to person from the start. She has also created a beautiful quilt to help raise money for the Program through a raffle.  You can see a picture of the quilt on the Donations page!
