"Come and Try It"
Fun & Relaxing Pen & Pencil Doodling Activity
One of our neighbors, Lila Stoffel, has offered to moderate a special (and free) session of a relaxing (and fun) Pen & Pencil Doodling Activity for EE residents on Wednesday, September 9, 3-4 pm. This activity puts focus on your personal thoughts and life experiences. No contests, no analysis, no judgment....just contemplation, relaxation and fun. You'll need to bring a pen or pencil and any kind of paper, plus your memories of people, places and things you've experienced. This activity is based on Lila's 15 yrs. of experience in a project designed to address issues of boredom, isolation and loneliness; issues we've all experienced during this time of the COVID virus. No fee, no prior experience needed. With respect to social distancing, the group size will be limited to 15; one person per table in the EE Ramada. Please wear a mask.  Call Lila if you'd like to attend to the first "Come and Try It" session. 218-731-7694.  All EE residents are welcome!
The work party meetings for the Gardeners will resume in the fall.  We'll send out a notice a few weeks ahead.  Thank you to the people who are watering our gardens and new plantings in the parks and common areas.  Your help is much appreciated!
