Nursing Home News--May 2013

This is the March 2012 newsletter of Friends Across the Ages nursing home outreach

SPRING/SUMMER EDITION OF THE BRIDGE TO BE SHIPPED TODAY—

DO WE HAVE YOUR ADDRESS?

Our Spring/Summer edition of our “snail mail” newsletter, The Bridge, is being printed right now and will be ready to be shipped later today. We have been updating our address list—please contact us if you are not sure we have your current USPS address! Also, if there’s anyone you know who might like to receive a copy, please ask them to send us their address as well! Students—we know many of you may have gone home for the summer, so this call for addresses is particularly aimed at you. You won’t want to miss all the latest news from Friends Across the Ages!
