The Siliver Screens Arts Festival Details:
Come have a cup of coffee, bring along a lunch, and hear the inspirational stories of seniors featured on a special website which celebrates and promotes living legacies and legends. In addition, a few members of Recording Recollections will share their stories. These personal reflections by real people whose experiences have spanned decades can enrich, comfort, and inspire us in our own lives. Join us!
Mary Bart, along with a dedicated group of volunteers who shared her experience of losing parents, created a unique website to honor the lives of their parents; celebrate the inspirational stories of those seniors still living; and offer free support and education to people who are coping with the declining health or death of a parent. www.losingourparents.com
Recording Recollections is a group of older adults who meet once a week on the Ryerson campus to share their stories and memories in written form. They have been on the Ryerson campus for over 25 years and produce a magazine of their current stories once a year. This group is part of the LIFE Institute.
