Postcards of Solidarity

A postcard making and writing activity for adults and children in partnership with Le Renaissance – Manoir St-Francis.

In this difficult time many seniors find themselves cut off from friends and family. Consider creating an artistic  “postcard of solidarity” to send to a resident of the Manoir St. Francis.

  • Contact the library to let us know you want to take part.
  • We will prepare a selection of craft materials for you and your family to create a colourful, original postcard at home.
  • Bring your finished postcard(s) back to the library and we will deliver them for you.
  • Children and adults alike are welcome to participate.
