Why Thank You

The art of letter writing and short missives is not lost.  The brainchild of one of Lake Worth’s own citizen John Cutrone.  As head of the Jaffe Books Arts Collection at Florida Atlantic U. he introduced  “real mail fridays”  every first Friday from 4 – 6 p.m.,   anyone can come and participate.  A space of congeniality with like minded people.      DSCN5579            That letter that you’ve meant to write, the thank you note a bit past due.  Use their many  amazing papers, pens and inks, sealing wax and rubber stamps that are on hand or bring your own. They have stamps for you and cookies and tea and coffee.  Some of yesterdays participants.  ... and you thought they only text… and you thought they only text
