Club member Barb Cole has a suggestion for keeping busy while staying at home. She is tackling the project of going through many old photo albums. She is pulling out photos of family from way back and making albums for her
grandchildren. She is also sending pictures of friends to their families with a note sharing her memories. This is going to take quite some time, but if she gets bored, she can always go to her card making! And a message from Barb, "Take care of yourselves and miss you all very much."
