The members of the “super memory club” are the fewer than one in 200 of us who manage to live past 90 without any signs of dementia. This group is described in the second article in a terrific series on the brain by New York Times writer Benedict Carey (the first of which I previously discussed in this blog). In this article, Carey reports on the 90+ Study, started in 1981 at Laguna Woods, a retirement community south of L.A. This study has provided further evidence that, “mental engagement – doing crossword puzzles, reading books – may delay the arrival of symptoms [of dementia]. And social connections, including interaction with friends, may be very important, some suspect.”
With great pride, we are opening our second store on June 19th in Skokie, Illinois at the Westfield Old Orchard Shopping Center. I wanted to share with you some of the pictures of the construction so you could see what the store looks like before we get all our merchandise and furniture there. Our sign will go up this week and we will get our furniture and shelving by next week. I will attach more pictures next week as well so you can see how it is going.
Mark your calendars, we will be hosting a Preview Grand Opening celebration on June 17th from 5:30-7:30 and I would love to see you there to help us celebrate our 2nd store. Contact us if you would like to attend.
