NORTHFIELD — Nearly 200 took part in the 1st annual fund-raising run/walk in Northfield for Boston University's Alzheimers Research Center. The walk's title was The Timmons Team, named for Ginny Timmons, the mother of nine who was recently found to be in the beginning stage of the disease.
After numerous presentations to nearby Rotary and Knights of Columbus groups, meeting others in various settings, Timmons says she was cognizant of the disease's prevalence and the the need for research to find a cure.

The program began under the Rhode Island Department of Community Affairs. Through the dedication of the department and the guidance of the New England Association of City and Town Clerks, NEMCI&A has grown from one class with 32 students to the point where it now offers three Institute classes and several advanced Academy classes. Over 500 cities and towns have sent Clerks to the New England Municipal Clerks' Institute and Academy over its thirty-nine year history.
