Sometimes a wonderful heartwarming story comes along our way and we have to share! Jennifer Clancy, who works with ALLE Learning, wrote to tell us what one of their elder communities, the Fellowship Square Mesa,  did for a recent service project. This senior adult group had decided they wanted to do something for the veterans at the Phoenix VA Hospital. She explained, “They decided on Valentine Day boxes filled with useful and not so useful stuff (i.e. candy).” Donald’s American Flag postcards was placed in each box. The photo below shows the group after their boxes were finished!

Jennifer explained further, “These communities come in many forms; independent living, assisted living, health centers, senior day care centers or long term care facilities. We work with all residents regardless of their physical or mental state.

After being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease, my mother moved to an assisted living community. She lived there about five years before passing away. I was thankful that she was safe and had access to exercise and other wellness activities but soon discovered that there was very little on the monthly calendar for her mind or brain. I began ALLE Learning as a volunteer so that my mother would have access to book studies, presentations on interesting topics that were age appropriate and reinforcement projects. As communities began to hear about our efforts we began to teach our classes at other communities.

Fellowship Square Mesa is one of those communities. We meet with a group of 25 residents every Saturday afternoon for a two hour class. The residents in the photo are from this class. Every quarter they choose to do a service project and since we are also teaching our classes at the VA Hospital we thought it would be a great way to bring the two together. Our participants at the VA are in the palliative care and hospice unit. They are men and women who have served our country (as have many of our class participants). The residents wrote letters and cards and filled the boxes with all sorts of treats. We delivered 40 boxes.

As a way of scaling our efforts of providing lifelong learning to every senior adult living community in the U.S. we launched  ALLE Online.  Our mission is simple, we believe that learning is for everyone. Research is showing that we are on the right track; having a healthy mind and brain requires learning new things, not just playing brain games. By providing high-quality, affordable learning materials, every community can implement a lifelong learning program for all residents.”

The American flag is available as postcards or note cards with matching envelopes. This beautiful patriotic image also comes as a 11 x 14″ art poster print.

Donald is perhaps best known for his amazing lighthouse photographs. These capture the quintessential feature of the Maine coastline – silent yet majestic beacons among the rocks. While these photographs grace his prints and calendars, these can now be found on his elegant postcard collections. These postcards can be used not just as notelets but as invitations and thank you cards!

Beautiful Sea Glass in Print!

Donald Verger Art Calendars

Sea glass is something many beachcombers enjoy collecting. The allure of  broken glass pieces  tumbled and rounded by wave action on sand and pebbles is hard to resist.  The man made fragments are pretty and stand out from the sand and shells along the beach.

What attracts people is the thrill of the hunt.  Finding the best location for beach glass is one thing but coming across rarer colors of sea glass is perhaps the most fun of all.

Yet, one of the greatest irony about sea glass is that it is diminishing at a time when more and more people are interested in it.  That’s due to the  historical switch from glass to plastic use.  Some people try and duplicate the frosted look of sea glass by tumbling broken glass but the look of real sea glass cannot easily be achieved by artificial means.

Donald’s wonderful  calendars and postcards capture the beauty of sea glass for all to enjoy. Not just beachcombers but  those who live far away from the nearest shore.  The  lovely photographs show the everlasting beauty of sea glass.  One of my favorite calendars is this one below which shows little heart shape sea glass.  The perfect calendar for someone special!
