The COVID19 shut down has certainly made things difficult for our seniors, but also for families. In Essex we have reached out to the local Elementary school to start a pen pal program. This benefits our seniors – particularly those without internet access. But it also helps our families to encourage students to write. We hope at the end of this to host a get together. We have also reached out to the high school to see if we have any students who would like to document stories from our older residents.
