Summary

A project to preserve the stories of seniors living in our community.

Description

Help ensure that personal stories are celebrated and not lost. Students are the interviewers and seniors are the interviewees. First the class would need some training on the process of writing an oral history (perhaps from Mary Tyson from the Community Library) and then engage in the interview process with Senior Connection members!
