Participant Ed gets some guidance with his art project from Artistic Director Jerry Devis and volunteer Gretty looks on!
   Thinking of all of you as spring blossoms arrive in beauty and spirit. We miss being at our Center but have been able to stay in touch with many of you, but want to encourage many more to join us on our Zoom Conference sessions. These are held on Tuesday and Friday at 2pm. Email invitations are sent the previous day with instructions. We have found that even through we are not together at the Center, it allows us to still connect and be engaged, enjoy a program led by our professionals and have time to share thoughts and concerns. This week on Tuesday, April 14th at 2pm, we will offer two programs: First, Storyteller Kathy Strawser will share a story, “Whimsy’s Heavy Things”. Then, Music Therapists Beckie Tweedle and Glenn Sonoda will lead a music program. On Friday, April 17th also at 2pm, Dr. Charlie will host his Friday afternoon Chat. A time to check in and discuss some issues and reflections of the current day. Then there will be time for an art activity made with household objects. Time to create, enjoy and share with others. As always we can be contacted by email at: or you may leave a message at

Friday Afternoon Chat
Date: Friday, Apr. 17th
Time: 2pm
Come spend an hour with friends and acquaintances from the Farrell Foundation! Dr. Charlie will lead the afternoon Chat. Then look for a found object around your house to transform into a mini masterpiece! Tin foil, pipe cleaners, paper, kitchen gadgets/utensils, wire, paper cups, etc. All you need is the selected material; maybe some tape or glue and bring them to your computer/iPad screen and we will guide you to create! Same as Tuesday, you will receive an email invitation specific for the Friday program; then follow instructions.
