SOWER SPECIAL EDITION
We are asking all of you to share some of your Covid 19 experiences to be included in our SOWER Special Edition next month. How have you and your families survived 2020 and Covid? Schooling from home, not going out for dinner, not seeing friends from church, work, school etc. Have you found any new hobbies, recipes, good books during your time at home? How did you survive the holidays? Via zoom, Facetime, outdoor dinners in warm clothes and face masks? Just something fun to connect us during this time of not being able to be together. Perhaps you have pictures to share of some of your activities. Just a paragraph or two. Email them to email@example.com, by Thursday, March 18. I will get them to Faith Armstrong, our SOWER editor extraordinaire!
