Volunteer Alyssa Ream, 13, of Sedalia, places flowers on a table for participants in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s Saturday morning. “I’m here with my friend, because she lost some people in her family,” Ream said. Participants could choose a flower color and then write a person’s name on the petals. Blue flowers represented having Alzheimer’s; yellow showed support for someone else who has Alzheimer’s; purple represented having lost someone with Alzheimer’s; and orange showed support for a world without Alzheimer’s.
