Personal Legacy Workshop set

The goal of her service is to help people find healing and remembrance though writing.

Stop saying, “I really should start writing this down!” and come learn a quick, easy method of getting your stories and memories on paper. Participant’s projects have included memoirs, letters, family histories, scrapbook and photo histories with stories, pet remembrances, journals, etc. Workshops will be the second Monday of every month except October. Attend as many as you like until your project is complete.
