Finders Keepers


To The Editor:

The members of Team Memory Keepers would like to acknowledge their gratitude to all who helped make Finders Keepers, their recent fund-raising garage sale for the benefit of the Alzheimer’s Association a great success.

We extend our thanks to Vern Drew, Jr., commander of the Massena VFW, for allowing us to use the space at the VFW hall to conduct our sale and to the VFW staff for their invaluable assistance.

We also express our heart-felt appreciation to all those who donated items, time and/or cash. You are truly the reason for our success. We extend an extra-special thank you to our husbands - David Sedlock, Roger Gollinger and Bob Dumas - for their patience and assistance throughout the planning, setting up and operation of the garage sale and to our friend Racheal Travis for all she has done to support our family and our cause.

Finally, we are so grateful to our many friends and neighbors who attended the garage sale and supported our efforts with your generous cash donations. We are delighted that you were able to find some treasures to take home with you.

We are happy to report that due to the generosity and support of so many, we were able to raise about $900 for the Alzheimer’s Association.

If you would like more information about the Alzheimer’s Association or the 2013 Walk to End Alzheimer’s, please contact any of the members of Team Memory Keepers or visit the Alzheimer’s website at or the Memory Keepers Facebook page at
