Spirited 98-year-old BERNICE ENKE of Hammond was the highlight of the ‘Jump Start Your Brain’ seminar held Nov. 13 at the Performing Arts Center, sponsored by the local Sunset Unit 12 Oregon Retired Educators Association, JUDY MATTSON (OREA secretary) and TRUDY ENKE (OREA vice president, and Bernice’s daughter) told the Ear.

Bernice had been in the hospital two weeks before, and was still using a wheelchair. But she was determined to attend this seminar, and was irritated that she had difficulty hearing and remembering everything.
