 Morning Speaker: Jamie Spikes, a semi-retired nurse, will present “Buttons Galore”. She encourages everyone to do something with your buttons: embellish your clothes, display them, and decorate various items with them. Jamie will share some of her framed and preserved button pieces and show the button necklaces and bracelets she makes. The items will be available for purchase with proceeds to charity.

 Afternoon Speakers: A healthy normal 14 year old boy who excelled in school and was active in band, track, and 4-H suddenly drastically changed. The Mike and Melanie Musselman family will share about their journey on “The Brain Inflamed: Losing and Saving Luke”. Their son Luke was finally diagnosed with PANS (Pediatric Acute Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome) after much treatment and challenges. Mike and Melanie continue to fight for his treatment and to help him get back to the life he knew before PANS.
