2012 – 2013 Tranquility Project

Sponsored by:

Hospice & Palliative Care of the Wood River Valley

Project Champion:

Carolyn Nystrom

What are the appropriate grade levels:

K to 12

Is there a limit to the number of participants:

It would depend on who and what age group. We want to create about 5-6 books.

Is there an opportunity for community service:


Is this a new or existing project:

This is a new project.

Estimated project cost:




We are interested in creating “Tranquility” books for our patients and their families…perhaps other audiences in the future. Our adult volunteers are collecting and submitting photos to be judged and we want to open this opportunity to students in the valley to help by either contributing photos, creating the books (on Shutterfly or similar website), perhaps have a contest in a classroom. Because this is a new program, students could give their ideas as to how this might fit in to their curriculum. It could be students interested in photography, graphics, nature, publishing or just eager to express what calms them in times of stress.
