Grant recieved for Memory Kits
St. Peter Recreation and Leisure Department Senior Center has received a $1,500 grant from the Mankato Clinic Foundation to be used for the creation of the Saint Peter Memory Café and Memory Minder Kits.

The first program, a collaboration with the public library, is to make and provide Memory Minder Kits that will be available to all library patrons. Memory Minder Kits are specially created for caregivers to spark memories, create conversation and provide positive interaction between people with dementia or Alzheimer’s and their care partners. These kits would be available for check-out at the Saint Peter library and processed as a regular library item.

The library will be closed in observance of Presidents Day
