"[We're] celebrating those that we've lost, and encouraging people to support the association for those of us who may need the help in the future," said Zambon.
The event at Holiday Acres benefits the local Alzheimer's Association.
"Almost every person that we talk to that comes through the door for the event has been touched by this disease in some way, so it's awesome that they have this opportunity to support the cause and share their stories," said Community Outreach Coordinator Julie St. Pierre.
Sharing stories helps those who have family members with the disease.
"The resources that are available now are more than there were years ago," said Zambon.
Lori Regni took advantage of the association's support system.
"They were a resource, putting me in connection to resources that could help me," said Regni.
Regni spent 10 years caring for her mother who had dementia.
"[It took] a lot of hard work, a lot of patience," said Regni.
For Zambon and Regni, the show of support at Memories and Melodies is meaningful.
"It's very, very rewarding," said Zambon.
"It's wonderful, the support of the community," said Regni.
They hope that people will continue to show that support in the future.
"I think it's really important for the Rhinelnader area and everybody," said Zambon. "We're lucky to have the Alzheimer's Association."
Organizers say the event raises roughly $15,000 dollars each year. Zambon and Regni urge everyone to get informed about the warning signs for dementia and Alzheimer's.
