April is the first full month of spring and Christine’s Birthday is on April 28th.
Christine has shared her special birthday memory with us.
“A special memory from my birthday was when I was at my Mom’s house several years ago. A lot of my family and friends came to celebrate, and we were outside, listening to music, and I had a birthday cake. Because of the pandemic, I am not able to have a birthday party with all of my friends and family.”
Your friends are wishing you a socially distanced Happy Birthday, Christine!!
April also saw a Breaking the Ice Town Hall on Saturday April 10th. They had a special presentation by Joseph, who shared his invention with us. There was a general discussion about what other AAC users have invented to help them in their daily lives. Both Carolyn and Samantha found it very interesting and how people are able to be so creative.
We have a new way to put on lip gloss now!!
See Nola’s message below…
It was interesting to hear how people learned to adapt and maintain their communication and relationships during the pandemic. People have had birthday parties, had a virtual summer camp, and had learning sessions on different topics. We can’t wait for the next Town Hall.

A special invention from Breaking the Ice Town Hall submitted by Nola Millin
My invention is a block of wood with a hole drilled in the top. The hole is big enough to hold a tube of lip balm (or chap stick) standing. I can then bend over and apply it to my lips whenever I need to..
Here are 2 pictures.
Thanks Nola for sharing with our readers!
