Dear Center Members,

For the last couple of weeks we've talked about gratitude, stress reduction, staying safe, and more. If you've missed these weekly updates you can find them on the township website , senior center page, where you can find the past few weekly updates. I have included many resources ranging from how to access mental health assistance to virtual tours of museums to live recorded performances of opera to a senior chef service which includes supermarket shopping and so much more. I have appreciated your positive feedback about these weekly updates and I will continue them and include information, hopefully without giving you info overload!

Another week that we have survived!

Wow! This has been so difficult on so many levels it's hard to adequately put into words the complicated feelings, concerns and wonders about how the future will look; however, we can't sit idly by. When we do, our minds wander and often it's back to the 'what if's...'

If you are one of those individuals able to create with word or material what a fabulous distraction that must be. To those with hobbies, oh, how I admire you, and to those who've begun to garden, how satisfying that must be.

Below, you will find another activity that hopefully will inspire, distract and connect you to us. I have had a lot of fun putting this together and look forward to seeing your responses on Facebook.

I n case you missed my last mid week blast: Maryann's classes are now on our local South Brunswick TV station:

Take good care! Cannot wait to see you all very soon!!

Best,
Caryl
