Details of Major Brain Awareness Week Events/Activities:

For the first time in the many years we have been doing this event, there was a predicted ice storm that day, and the news outlets for the entire preceding evening and that morning were urging the public to stay home Sat. AM – usually our busiest time. As a result, we had materials left over, and a greatly diminished crowd at the Market, and lower attendance figures this year.
