Oregon Humanities is hosting a letter exchange program called Dear Stranger

Lake Oswego's Adult Community Center and Parks and Recreation staff are still hard at work producing and delivering Meals on Wheels to Lake Oswego seniors and those with disabilities. And while we are far from bored we thought you might be needing some entertainment ideas, or something to do.

As some of you know the LOACC partners with Oregon Humanities to host Conversation Project events, facilitated conversations on a wide range of topics. Oregon Humanities has another project called Dear Stranger, a letter exchange program. You write a letter to a stranger about anything that is on your heart, a topic of interest or even how you are feeling about the current pandemic. You send the letter to Oregon Humanities and then they in turn mail it anonymously to a stranger who then reads it. The details can be found here. Sign up to write a letter and share your thoughts with others. You can also receive a letter written by someone.

If you are a caregiver and needing some caregiving advice Oregon Care Partners offers a multitude of free education class. At this link, you will find support and free classes.

If you just need to laugh YouTube is a treasure-trove. May we suggest opening YouTube and in the search bar enter "Jimmy Fallon, Thank You Notes." Your search will result in quite a few snippets of Jimmy's show; always good for a laugh.

Please stay, healthy, happy and entertained in these strange times.

This week's Meals on Wheels delivery menu features turkey on Friday, April 10; fish tacos on Monday, April 13 and Cuban pork sandwiches on Wednesday, April 15. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.

The center is closed until further notice due to the coronavirus pandemic. Visit the website for resources or call 503-635-3758 to learn more.
