A birthday is something that we all have, whether we celebrate it or not. Everyone deserves to have her/his special day celebrated. And what a better way to celebrate the life of someone important to us than by throwing them a birthday party? With these thoughts, the board members of the association have started this year a monthly celebration of its members’ birthdays.
But as always, life has a way of throwing a curveball at us. We were only a couple of months through the year when a pandemic put a sudden stop to our socializing. So, what do you do when you are in confinement during your birthday? Well, while we still haven’t figured out how to virtually blow birthday candles, the association is able to stay present at its members’ side and to continuously extend their heart-warming birthday wishes over aperitif via Facebook Live and Messenger. After several months of confinement, the association adapts with the “new normal” of social distancing and throws our dear members a birthday party at a safe distance.
So if your birthday is just right around the corner, we wish you a very happy birthday! Watch out for the next months’ birthday parties and stay positive and full of light!
