Jogging Down Memory Trails
If you don’t write your memoirs, your grandchildren and great-grandchildrfen will never know. And if you don’t start jotting down memories, maybe even you won’t know--or at least be able to remember at a crucial time. Our program is not a writing lesson; rather, it is a memory lesson: helping us better pinpoint the important--and the trivial--in our lives.
