Welcome to the NEW NORMAL! New for sure, normal…not so much. For the past 10,000 years, we have become more and more intertwined and interdependent. Isolation is no longer a cultural value. Our mandated lifestyle is not normal but rather an aberration. We need to work hard and adjust to our current lifestyle, but yet look forward to the return to normality. The Foundation will continue to provide our Zoom programs and to also provide Art Kits to keep us all as close together as possible. We will begin to work with the State Health Department and develop 
a format that will allow us to begin to use the Center sometime in the future. We miss you and look forward to seeing you in person soon!

Board Member & Volunteer Gretty Myers has a recommendation for a food source during our current situation and for the future. She highly recommends: Perfectly Imperfect Produce!
Supermarkets reject fruits and veggies that are unique in size, shape or color to meet consumer demand for perfection. It’s part of the reason our country throws away 40% of the food we produce, which ends up in landfills where it turns to methane – a greenhouse gas 100 times more potent than carbon monoxide. When 21% of our water, 18% of our land and 10% of our energy is used to grow our country’s food, that’s an awful lot of resources to be wasting. Especially when 41 million Americans are food insecure.
Our mission is to reduce food waste and improve healthy food access for all. That’s why for every box purchased, we donate produce to local food pantries.
Support Group
Dr. Charlie would like to host convenient times with care partners to discuss current concerns and issues you might be facing during the Covid-19 health challenges. He will offer small group or one-on-one opportunities to discuss current situations and methods to find resolution.
The meetings will be offered by phone conference Monday & Thursday afternoons. Please contact Dr. Charlie Farrell at 440-552-2267 to arrange an appointment.
Artist-In-Residence and volunteer Lee Ann Eyre showed 
us what she’s been doing to stay busy during the
