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 summer is here. The days, colors and more 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 2pm 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, contact us at: info@farrellfoundation.com or at:

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!
