Ski shop to benefit Alzheimer's

The Ski and Sport Store in Ridgefield will host an “après ski” party on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 11 to 4,  at 197 Ethan Allen Highway to benefit the Connecticut chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. There will be a preview of winter sports and fashion, live music by the Easy Street band, prizes and a silent auction.

“ We’ll even have snow,” store manager Darlene Mercede said of the family friendly event. Scott Russell, a  Ridgefielder who has early onset Alzheimer’s, will read from a book he wrote to help youngsters understand the changes they may see in grandparents with Alzheimer’s.
