In our fast-paced society there is still a place for handwritten notes - especially for something as important and personal as the thank-you note.

Is there someone you've wanted to thank and you just haven't taken time to do it? On the second Thursday of each month, we'll supply the cards, pens and stamps for you to send a little joy someone's way!

Coloring for Adults
Monday, October 14 - 6:00pm | Room C


coloring

Coloring is an activity we think of as being for kids. However, it can be beneficial for adults.

Coloring helps us de-stress because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. Coloring generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

Coloring sheets and colored pencils will be provided. Adults only, please.
