An Algoma group is trying to bring back an art that has gone out of style with the advancement in technology. A group of Algoma residents gets together once per month to create connections through the art of letter writing. They meet at Yardstick Books on the third Sunday of every month. Heidi Raak, owner of Yardstick Books in Algoma, says the idea behind the Society comes from a desire to keep the practice of letter writing alive as a way of creating and maintaining communities. Raak added everybody likes getting and reading a handwritten letter.
The next meeting will take place on Sunday at Yardstick Books at 2 PM. For each meeting there is a theme that participants are asked to write about. This month the theme is water as part of the Art of Water Algoma is participating in currently. The events are free and open to the public. All ages are invited to participate.
