A Note from Patti Ward, TRASA Executive Director
A weekly note to check in and give us all an opportunity to share
How are you spending your down time?
I am using this down time to get mega organized. Cleaning up my emails, re-organizing my office and many other tasks that seem to always fall to the bottom of the "hope to get to it" pile.

How are you using this time? Have something to share with the members? Email me: Patti@trasa.net.

Stay in Touch with Relatives via Facetime or Skype

Have you thought about reading stories to or chatting with relatives through Facetime or Skype? If you are a grandparent you might consider reading stories to your grandchildren. Wear a hat, use a prop. This would be alot of fun. You can also share recipes and photos through email with friends and relatives.
