Class #9

Telling Your Story

Jerry Apps

July 19 | 9 - 4


We all have stories to tell—stories about growing up, first jobs, military service, first homes. Stories that should be written down and shared with family and friends. Stories that made us who we are today. Jerry has activities that that will trigger those memories. You’ll have a chance to do some writing and hear other people’s stories that will help you remember as well. Jerry’s book, Telling Your Story, will be used as a reference during the day.
