Lend a Hand – Senior Writing Project Nov 24, 2008 * 2 – 5

In attendance: Ruth, Jim, Sherri, Betty, Vivian, Lesley

We had lots of conversation as Sherri and Lesley prepared for Lesley’s trip to Britain. Evaluations were handed out as Lesley prepared tea for those who wanted it. Betty said, “Words are tricky!”

Sherri announced StoryCorps’ “National Day of Listening”, on November 28th.

Everyone journaled.

During sharing, did the Listen and Respond exercise.

Lesley explained how to use the responses to refine/expand the writing. Use as a prompt to write for next time to share. Lots of laughter during the exercise sharing.

Betty shared a letter of gratitude to Lesley, that everyone signed. It was very lovely and special.

Holly from Ward 3 City Council Office, came to interview the Senior Writing participants for their next newsletter.
