TODAY, June 16, our dear friends, the community in Watertown, MA, are painting their town purple again for The Longest Day. The event has been organized by Judy & Steve Johanson and their family for several years now, and aims to raise funds & awareness about Alzheimer's disease.
This year the event will take on new meaning, as Steve lost his battle with Alzheimer's earlier this year. Our lead Pietro had the honor to meet Judy & Steve in person during The Longest Day event last year. See his touching post, "Remembering Steve Johanson", here 💜
Last year, Watertown's event included a block party with Stall Catchers stands, which were wildly successful !! (See short video below.) We are hoping to repeat this success and break new records in the game this year :)
