Coping with COVID: April 28

April 28, 2020 - 21:59

Illinois sets a new one-day record for COVID-19 deaths. Anyone who needs an antidote for such somber news should check out Lily LaPlante's Rainbow Exercise Project. Two H-F students will appear as panelists on Commissioner Donna Miller's virtual town hall meeting this afternoon. Izaak Walton still has native plants to help with gardening therapy, and Maple Tree Inn has started offering toilet paper and paper towels to take-out customers who are having trouble finding those items in the stores.
