Caregiver Appreciation Day
The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum and CaringKind invite caregivers of individuals with dementia to our second annual Caregiver Appreciation Day!

September 21, 2020
2:00pm-3:00pm

Mail call was always a highlight for Intrepid's crew members, as letters were the only way to stay connected with loved ones back home and across the world. Through handwritten notes and postcards, crew members shared stories of adventure and boredom, feelings of love and frustration, and curiosity about life off ship.

Join fellow caregivers online to explore some of the letters in the Intrepid Museum's collection and meet former crew member Jerry Feola, whose letters with his future wife, Arlene, helped strengthen their bond during difficult times when they were apart.

This program will be conducted over Zoom and is free for caregivers with advance registration. Please email access@intrepidmuseum.org for more information and to register.
