June 1 is the nationally recognized day to celebrate pen pals. Nothing beats receiving a personal letter in the mail! Become pen pals with a senior living resident, a grandchild, a family member, an old friend or neighbor.
Reasons to write to a pen pal:
- Reflection promotes
self-care and creativity.
- Enjoy new friendships,
or maintain old ones.
- Connect with those you cannot see in person.
- Consider writing to your pen pal about personal events, memories, and ideas.
