Remembering the salient times in life is an important thing to most people, and it seems even more pressing for those who struggle with memory loss. The Daybreak Center is an organization that holds activities and provides help to improve and hopefully maintain the memories of local seniors.

The activities held by the Daybreak Center help memory and health and also provide a simple opportunity to socialize and enjoy the presence of close friends. Little do some people know that this organization can bring you to meet one of the most legendary people not only to the Sandpoint area, but also in NFL history.

This mission to conserve memory is important to even the great Jerry Kramer, former Sandpoint Bulldog, and Greenbay Packer hall of famer.  

For the past three years, Kramer has been helping this organization through a fundraiser, coined this year as the “Memories of a Legend” and will be happening on May 22nd, at the Panida Theater.

General admission will include a free poster for only $8, but there are also VIP tickets for $55 available in limited numbers that will include a pre-event meet and greet with food and beverages, a poster, and other items.

The event will include Kramer talking about his time spent as a Sandpoint Bulldog, leading into his career as a Greenbay Packer, and finally through his induction to the NFL hall of fame, which happened last year at our very own Sandpoint High School.

Following the “Memories of a Legend” helps to support locals struggling with memory loss, and provides the unique opportunity to meet the legend himself.
