Walk to End Alzheimer’s
The Alzheimer’s Association Walk to End Alzheimer’s will take place on September 28 at Betts Park in Warren. Hundreds of people from the Warren area are expected at this year’s event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
On Walk day, participants will honor those affected by Alzheimer’s disease with Promise Flowers during the poignant Promise Garden Ceremony – a moving display of hope to represent the personal reasons participants join together to fight Alzheimer’s.
More than five million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease – the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States. Additionally, more than 16 million family members and friends provide care to people with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. In Pennsylvania alone, there are more than 400,000 people living with the disease and 676,000 caregivers.
Participants can join a team or register to walk as an individual at alz.org/walk.

Discussion on Jupiter
For the month of September, the Martz-Kohl Observatory will be celebrating the planet Jupiter.
At 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4, both members and non-members are invited to the observatory for a short discussion on Jupiter. After the discussion, all will have an opportunity to tour the observatory as well as view Jupiter and other celestial objects in the night sky, weather permitting. When the weather is permitting, Jupiter has been highly visible through the 20-inch Kohl telescope.
When planning a visit to the observatory, it is best to have seasonal attire on hand as the domes which house the telescopes, as well as the roll-off roof area of the observatory, are not heated.
The observatory is located at 176 Robbin Hill Rd., Frewsburg, N.Y.
The Martz-Kohl Observatory is an all-volunteer, non-profit association [501(c)3] and does not charge for admission.
A non-member donation of $5 per adult and $2 per child or student is appreciated.
The Martz-Kohl Observatory houses one of the largest public robotic telescopes in the Northeastern United States.
On open observatory nights, the public is welcome to come and tour the facility. If the evening sky is clear, the telescopes will be used to view the celestial sphere.
