Postcards Underground

A Gift of Gratitude, Received in Gratitude

Postcards Unground 030813

It was with great pleasure and surprise I received these wonderful postcards, thanking me for my work with the Memory Cafes.  I do have to clarify though, that in no way have I done this work alone!  My wonderful colleagues at Arthur’s Memory Cafe (previously known as J. Arthur’s Memory Cafe), our founding partners: Arthur’s Residential Care, ACR Healthcare Group, The Alzheimer’s Research Center, Health Partners and The Minnesota Memory Project have all been involved in the development and expansion of the Memory Cafes.

I believe it is was the wonderful article Gail Rosenblum from the Star Tribune, did on Arthur’s Memory Cafe which triggered these postcards.  If you haven’t read the article I encourage you to do so now.  Gail captured the essence of our group and how beneficial these gatherings are.  In fact, the response to the article was so great, we had 16 new people attend our very next meeting and now have two groups!   Our new members averaged a drive of 45-60 minutes one way, which shows you the need of these gatherings.

Maybe, just maybe you will you will be inspired to start a gratitude initiative like Postcards Underground and make someones day; or if you would like information on how to start up your own Memory Cafe I would be glad to assist you!
