Everyone remembers when they hauled a treasured possession to school and told their friends why they loved it so much? Well, now they have the chance to share on a whole different level with Show & Tell for grown-ups.
The public is invited to bring old photos, letters, family mementos, or even an ancient artifact to show and tell the stories behind these items. Personal Historian Eileen Kent and Owner/Director of Stories of a Lifetime will host the event at the Oneida County Historical Society, 1608 Genesee Street, Utica, NY 13502 on May 10, 2014 at 1:00PM.
Grown-up Show & Tell events are happening across North America and abroad in partnership with the Association of Personal Historians (APH). Anyone is welcome to join in the fun and become part of the conversation. Perhaps it’s an old letter parents wrote to one another during the war, maybe an instrument or treasured personal item/artifact passed down through generations The possibilities are endless. Participants don’t have to show & tell – they can just look, listen & enjoy. It’s sure to evoke memories, laughter & tears.
It’s free, fun, and the stories will warm the heart and remind you of the joy of stories!
