The Governor Visits The Cypress!

We had a great time at our Alzheimer’s Awareness Kick Off event! In case you haven’t heard, The Cypress of Charlotte has been fundraising and raising awareness and support for the Alzheimer’s Association in preparation for the big Charlotte charity walk THIS Saturday the 26th!

At our Kick Off event, we were pleased to welcome Governor Pat McCrory, who was our special guest and speaker. We were touched by his personal story of his mother’s experience with Alzheimer’s.

The Governor was happy to cut the purple ribbon to begin our Golf Cart Parade while World Record Holder Harriette Thompson lead the charge!

Our members and staff did a great job decorating their golf carts, they were all so colorful and original, it’s impossible to choose a favorite!
