We have passed the 1 month mark of self-isolation. How are you all doing? Is there anything we can be doing for you? Please let us know. If you have suggestions of interesting links, videos or other activities that are worth sharing in future emails please email us at email@example.com.
If you are like us the days of the week and month are probably starting to blur together, but there is one thing that my staff and I cannot let pass by without recognizing. This week would normally be Spring Flea Market week for us. Today the book tent would be going up and the furniture would begin to be put away to make room for all the “stuff”. Although the staff might not miss the exhaustion of this week, we do miss the way the NSC community comes together to support our mission through this event. I hope you will take some time this week to check out our Facebook page, we have a series of posts related to the Flea Market through the years.
We host our flea market twice a year, every April and October. They are our biggest fundraisers, missing one means a loss of $25,000 to the Center. If you are a regular shopper at the flea market we hope you might consider how much you typically spend on your treasures (I know for me that is about $100, unless it’s a really good furniture year!) and make a contribution to the Center. You can easily contribute by clicking here.
We have another full week of exercise planned with Hunter, Bill and Julissa. The schedule and workout plan for Hunter’s workouts is listed below.
We know a lot of you miss the games you play at the Center, pinochle, bridge, mah jongg, canasta, bingo, to name a few. Our Program Director, Katie, developed a bingo game you can play at home. You’ll find the game below. When you complete five squares in a row let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or messaging us on Facebook and you will be entered into a drawing for a free annual membership. The deadline for entries is May 15th and you can enter up to five times. Good luck!
As always please let us know if there is anything you need.
P.S. A very special thanks to those who have made a special donation to the Center as a result of the additional income of the stimulus checks.
