The younger writers send the first note, which should be an introduction sharing a little about themselves, sharing good wishes, and asking polite questions. We will suggest ideas and prompts. Older writers are encouraged to reply independently or with the assistance of activity coordinators or other staff. Remember: This is a chance to make a friendly connection with people who want to reach out while so many of us are feeling isolated. It can be fun to find out what you have in common and also how different you may be.
