Stay at Home Activities for the Weekend

Staying at home and practicing social distancing does not have to be as difficult when you have fun activities to do. Here are three ideas for weekend fun my staff will be doing.

  1. Listening to DJ D-Nice, Questlove, or Matthew Law’s music streams on Spotify or Instagram
  2. Trying a new recipe
  3. Video conferencing with loved ones on Zoom, FaceTime, and WhatsApp

We will share more fun stay at home activities with you via e-news and social media. We encourage you to do the same or share your stay at home activities with us through appropriate photos and short videos either on social media or through email at

Please be safe, be healthy, and STAY HOME.
