BINGHAM — Upper Kennebec Valley Memorial High School students Cody Laweryson, Charlie Savoy, Jordan Belanger, Durgin Sweet and faculty members Katie Sweet Shibles and Lori Gordon recently visited Somerset Rehabilitation & Living Center to present a donation of $2,215.70 to Barbara Keegan, activity director. This donation is to be dedicated to benefit residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other related dementias.

Every year the high school students and faculty members choose a worthy community group or cause to support. This year they dedicated their efforts to those with Alzheimer’s disease.

Their efforts to raise money included a “Memories Matter” basketball game. The students sold T-shirts, bracelets, raffle tickets on items local business donated, concessions and a 50/50 raffle. Proceeds from these activities were then earmarked within the Bingham community.

Somerset Rehabilitation and Living Center, a community nursing home in Bingham, was chosen by the students and faculty to present their gift.
