Our guests this week will show us how a small city can run a performing arts center and bring everyday benefits to the community. Joe Mclalwain is the Executive Director and Gillian Jones is the Director of Programming at the Edmonds Center for the Arts. (ECA) ECA is about to open their 10th season with such national touring artists like Bruce Hornsby, Rita Moreno, Arlo Guthrie, John Pizzarellli and more. They also have a wide variety of acts including comedy, acrobats, and choir.
A big part of their mission is their commitment to being part of the community; one of their unique programs is a Dementia-Inclusive Series, a line-up of arts programs designed to engage people with memory loss as well as their care partners.

And in our second half its Sunday Morning Magazine with Kate Daniels; “Walk to End Alzheimers!” Joel and Nancy Johnson are physical therapists with their own practice in the Puget Sound area. A few years ago Nancy was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimers. Now this couple has a new work and cause, finding the cure for this challenging disease. Joel Johnson talks about this and life as he supports Nancy in her personal walk with neurologists and other specialists. An amazing couple, and they invite us in The Walk. There are numerous walks through September and early October.
