Atlantic Mayor Dave Jones signed a proclamation on Monday making Sept. 15-21 Alzheimer’s Awareness Week.

The proclamation says in part, “the City of Atlantic recognizes the efforts of the Atlantic Alzheimer’s Association to assist the State and National Alzheimer’s Association to raise awareness for the early detection and diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias, education, support and research, thereby improving the financial, physical and emotion health for members in Atlantic and Cass County living with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.”
