September 21st is World Gratitude Day!
We are so grateful to all of our guests, volunteers, Board Members and everyone in the community that helps support our work and mission. During these uncertain times, the Farrell Foundation has been able to remain connected to many of our important individuals and families. Our mission has been to strive to continue offering quality programs, services and sincere encouragement for everyone. We are grateful on this day and everyday throughout the year.
 
   We continue to think of each of you and hope to stay connected by social media and our Zoom programs. We hope all of you continue to stay well and safe. The joy and beauty of autumn is here. The colors and sunshine hopefully will brighten everyone’s day. If you have not joined one of our Zoom programs, we encourage you to spend some time with us currently at 2 pm on Tuesday and Friday afternoons. We offer time to visit and socialize right from the safety and comfort of your own home. Then we will guide you through a program of music, storytelling or art. We offer an alternative program on Wednesdays. Spend time with friends outdoors, light exercise, and respect of social distancing. If you have not participated and have questions or would like to be involved,
