The Mighty Pen!

Taught by:

Lilli Witzack

 

FRIDAY

NOVEMBER 19, 2021

FROM 1:30 TO 3:00 PM

THIS IS A  ONE DAY MINI-CLASS!

Have you ever written a letter? Have you ever written a letter to one of your government representatives or government agency about an issue that concerns you? Well, the time to do it is now!

 What if you don’t know how to write or format a letter? No problem, we will help you with that.

Having trouble saying what you mean? We can help you with that, too.

 You are unsure as to which representative or agency to send your letter? We can help you figure that out.

 You are happy with everything! Great, you can write a “thank you” letter to your local law enforcement or fire department or to a veteran you know.

Still shy about writing. How about a letter to grandma or a family member you haven’t seen in a while?

You don’t like your penmanship. Okay. Get over it! Did you know that when you hand write a letter to a government official the letter is given more importance? That is because handwritten letters are more unusual. They tell your reader that you care.

 So….

You’ll have a great time writing a letter with other people and you might learn a thing or two. If you like it, EIE will plan to host another letter writing event; perhaps even a monthly letter writing event!

 All you need to bring is your pen or pencil. We will supply the rest – paper and envelopes. We will even put the stamp on your envelope and mail it for you. Of course, if you want some fancy or homemade stationary, you will need to bring that.

 Make a difference with the simple act of writing a letter!

Fees: $10

 Please contact Miss Lilli to let her know that you are coming.
