Our Volunteer Coordinator runs a poetry group for residents of The Evergreens in Moorestown, NJ. They meet monthly. It has been going on almost two years now.
Back in 2005, our first round of poetry groups provided monthly readings at 3 sites in South/Central New Jersey. At a one time special reading, we did all Maya Angelou poems. She acknowledged our event with a note.
These groups provide so much for communities. Why not start one today.
