Clara’s Solstice Card, Other New Solstice Cards from FFRF

Longtime Foundation member Clara Carlson, of Washington state, turned 101 on Sept. 22. In between some bad health bouts this year, including pneumonia and a fall, Clara found the time and energy to draw one of the two winning entries in the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s solstice card contest this year.

Amid all this action I had a 101 birthday,” Clara writes, “and my granddaughter sent me a bouquet of 100 roses. Because they couldn’t last, I had them photographed.

“She wanted them to send 101, but they refused to add the single rose to the bouquet.

“But one doesn’t see 100 roses, in a bouquet, very often.”

Clara, a strong feminist and freethought activist, sends “affectionate regards to all the friends at FFRF.”

Clara’s full-color card with a gold edging says: “Have a wonderful Winter Solstice Season,” and sells for $14 ppd (10 cards and envelopes).
