Adult Childhood Memories
Storytelling is a program in which we engage our children with our adult community to share and learn about their childhood memories. In this program, we will all learn more about how our customs, roots and stories connect to one another enhancing a bond with our neighbors, friends and family.
These Are Free Events for the Public
These are free events for the public to attend and no money is collected or gained through them. Attendance on average is 25 guests and we rely on our supporters, donors and sponsors to help us keep these programs running and productive.
What Happens At a Storytelling Event
This program is run through a series of monthly community events where all gather and enjoy breakfast and refreshments provided by us or whomever sponsors the event.
- The program follows a plan of two hours where the first 30 minutes is spent greeting participants and enjoying some breakfast while all get comfortable.
- An hour is spent on the actual sharing of stories which follows a pattern of 6 questions that allows the teller to stay on topic. This is an interactive activity where children can participate as the stories can sometimes relate to anyone in the room.
- The last 30 minutes of the event is invested in any free raffles and the gifting of old fashioned prizes for the children.
- The children get to go home with a prize and some of the adults with freebies which vary depending on what we can get sponsored.
