Creative Courant: Newsletter #13

Happy Monday!

I hope you enjoyed your weekends. My family and I spent ours sticking pretty close to home. While we are venturing out for some outdoor pursuits, the number of COVID-19 cases continue to rise, throwing even more uncertainty our way.

This week we have gathered some follow-up stories from some earlier innovations we highlighted and gathered some fun activities from baking bread, romantic ballet to virtual rock concerts with Sir Elton.

Have a great week and stay healthy.

  • Farmers’ adaptations for socially distant visitors range from expanding produce pickups, a “drive-through” farm tour, and small-scale classes
