June is Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month and you may have noticed a few Downtown Mystic landmarks flashing purple.
The drawbridge house (pictured above) is dressed up with a purple ribbon made by Matt Beaudoin and the team from Mystic Knotwork. Matt jumped at the opportunity to bring more awareness to Alzheimer’s disease in honor of his late grandmother Ethel Beaudoin. Liberty Square anchor is wearing an over sized bow and the John J. Kelley Statue is donning a purple tshirt for the cause.
