Stories from the Past- A legacy for the future
Wednesday, October 30, at 10:30a.m.
We live in an amazing technological age. Historical information is recorded almost before it happens. Yet, ironically, many adults and children know very little about their own family history. Family mobility, geographical distance, and hurried lifestyles provide limited opportunities for younger and older generations to engage in family storytelling, an activity that used to be a natural occurrence in the daily lives of most families. This workshop helps participants understand the history of storytelling and helps them explore ways to preserve individual and family stories for future generations.
Halloween Costume Contest

Get your costume on and come to the WCSC! 1st and 2nd place prize given for best costume.
