What’s that you say? There’s a quarantine in place? You would never know it from all the fun Fidelity Assembly #242 has been having. Six feet apart, we laughed our way through a beach clean up, and realized being six feet apart was actually six feet closer than we had been the week before. Our assembly members and their families made inspirational cards to include with deliveries to shut in senior citizens through the organization, Senior Concerns. We learned that even in a pandemic, you can still enjoy a movie party, as we virtually enjoyed The Princess and the Frog©. We have also been busy making tie blankets for our favorite charity, The Painted Turtle Camp. Our virtual blanket making parties have turned into membership parties, as our non Rainbow friends have joined us in our crafty adventures, filled with lots of laughter and girl time. We have collected non perishable foods, prepared packaging for community garden produce deliveries, and have also prepared children’s waiting room activity kits for The Shriner’s Hospital.
We have enjoyed this time to get to know each other in a completely different way, and have discovered that we are fortunate to be able to be there for each other especially at the end of a long stressful day. We have connected with Rainbow girls across the country at our meetings and discovered that Rainbow love is deep and nothing, not even a pandemic, can keep us apart. Virtual meetings, masks, gloves, and six feet apart, we are all a part of one big supportive family. We have all found that in being of some service each day, we really have found the secret to a happy life.
