Today I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Kim Campbell as the Keynote Speaker in St. Cloud, MN at the Seniors Expo. It was very exciting and I was fortunate enough to get her to sign the letter her and Glen have on the sleeve of Glens "See You There" Vinyl Record album! Plus I will be seeing Ashley Campbell perform at the MN State Fair in a week on August 27th.

Kim Campbell Speaks at the Ideagen UN Empowering Women and Girls 2030 Summit

Kim was recently a selected speaker at the Ideagen UN Empowering Women and Girls 2030 Summit held at the United Nations in New York City. Over 30 other speakers also participated in this global summit about which you can read here: https://events.bizzabo.com/201717" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (Mouse over each image to view speakers' names/organizations.)

As a caregiver and as a wife who is losing her beloved husband to Alzheimer's disease, she must feel she has the world on her shoulders. So many of us are feeling this way, and the burden of worry for the future is a heavy one to bear. I admire Kim for participating in teaching events and continuing to share "lessons learned".

Members, would you like to share lessons you have learned as a caretaker that could help other people who participate on or read Glen Campbell Forums?
