Spreading inspirational messages of joy and hope may have been hard to do for many during the recent holiday season due to the coronavirus. That didn’t stop the Torrey Pines High School Junior Optimists from trying. They turned on their creativity and made whimsical, enjoyable, handmade cards with inspirational messages to brighten the lives of local seniors. In coordination with the activities director of Brookdale Carmel Valley, a local senior living community, the Junior Optimists made cards for delivery to each of the residents and staff of the facility. And they had fun doing it while gaining self-inspiration through their own efforts.
