 Hi It's Jayne Ann Bugda from the "Producer Pod"
  Here's what we are working  on for Eyewitness News for  April 3, 2014.
  Last night I had the honor of attending Alzheimer's Association The Greater Pennsylvania Chapter 2nd Annual Volunteer Recognition and Awards night.  The event was held at the Hilton in Scranton.  I was truly touched by the stories the volunteers shared with those in attendance about the work these dedicated volunteers do everyday. I was also honored to be recognized as part of the program.
  Organizers also kicked off the Walk to End Alzheimer's -so if you are interested in walking and helping support the association and the work they do- here is link to find a walk near you.
  The Alzheimer's Association is a beacon of hope and support for families looking for answers-  if you need information here is the helpline  1-800-272-3900
