Our community members enjoy the materials and information gained from events during this week that highlight the aging brain. The pencils and erasers also promote a lot of discussion among family and other that may visit and offer an intergenerational component which is great for brain health too. Thank you for sharing your wonderful resources with us! People of all ages seem drawn to the the pencils and erasers!
