Senior Lunch to benefit memorial fund

WADHAMS - The Dogwood Bread Company in Wadhams will hold its second Senior / Community Luncheon of the season on Saturday, January 25, at Noon. Dr. Josh Schwartzberg will conduct a discussion of two medical subjects of interest to many seniors: Osteoporosis and Early Cancer Detection and Screening for both men and women. The menu includes Chili, Cornbread, Salad, Apple Crisp, and Coffee & Tea. Donations will be accepted, and proceeds will go to the Christopher Emmet Hallowell Fund.

Created in memory of Westport resident Christopher Hallowell, who passed away in 2002, the fund provides financial assistance to families for incidental and unexpected expenses while caring for a child with a severe illness, thus allowing family members to provide the same continuous love and support that so greatly impacted the quality of Christopher's life while he battled severe illnesses.

The CEH Fund serves Essex, Clinton and Franklin Counties. It is affiliated with The Adirondack Community Trust, and all donations are tax deductible.

In the past seven years the CEH Fund has assisted eight families from the three counties.
