Lisa St. Charles of St. Charles Winery in Marquette, at left, presents a check to Alzheimer's Association Regional Director Ruth Almen. The money was raised at a recent fund-raiser for the Alzheimer's Association. Jim LaJoie, at right, took part in the fund-raiser and read from his book "Hi Mom It's Me," about his journey with his mother who suffered from Alzheimer's Disease. Proceeds from the sale of the LaJoie's book also go to the U.P. Region of the Alzheimer's Association. The book can be purchased at Amazon.com, Snowbound Books in Marquette or by reaching him at (906) 362-1318 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
