Around Town: AWARE' letters spell luncheon.

Byline: Joan Gilmore

The seventh annual OKC AWARE luncheon is scheduled Nov. 8 at Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club, where guests will learn what the letters really mean: "Alliance of Women for Alzheimer's Research and Education."

Keynote speaker will be Herb Magley, national spokesperson and advocate for the Alzheimer's Association.

From 11 until 11:45 a.m. education stations will be offering information about the disease, and the luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. There is no admission fee but donations will be requested. RSVPs should be made by Thursday to kvanhorn@alz.org or call Kaycee VanHorn at 405-319-0780. Luncheon chairs are Elaine Levy and Jane Thompson.

AWARE is a movement to raise awareness of the effect Alzheimer's disease has on women in the United States alone. Nearly 13 million women are either living with or caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease. Statistics indicate that more than 64,000 Oklahomans are living with Alzheimer's.

Native American art

Post Plymouth opens Thursday at Exhibit C Native Gallery in the Bricktown district at 1 E. Sheridan Ave., and it will be on view through Feb. 28. An artist reception will take place Sunday from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m.

The four featured artists are Roy Boney Jr., Tahlequah; Cannupa Hanska Luger and Daniel McCoy, both of Santa Fe, New Mexico; and Addie Roanhorse, Pawhuska.
