In this two-hour session, participants will begin to write a legacy as a way to be remembered, give deeper purpose to their lives and pass on their stories and values to those they love in future generations as they make deeper meaning from our lives. This workshop is for people in the latter half of their lives as well as people living with chronic and life-threatening illness. No writing experience is necessary.

This is a free event sponsored by Brattleboro Area Hospice. Space is limited to 30 people on a first-to-register basis. Call Joyce at 802-257-0775 ext. 105 to register.
