Memoir Project with the High School (Registration closed)

**Star in Your Own Memoir** (and educate today's teens about various moments in history and life before modern conveniences)

Mabel Kay Senior Center is very excited to announce that our inaugural memoir project was a great success.  We had over 35 seniors participate and we are now making this project an annual project

What was it you ask?

Mabel Kay collaborated with a 9th grade English class from Haddonfield Memorial High School to write your memoir. The students met their senior friends during the month of October, interviewed them, got to know their life story, wrote it up, and handed them a finished product for them to keep or to hand down to their family. It was a great opportunity for our seniors to teach the students about various moments in history, what life was like "back then," and what life was like before modern technologies like smart phones and the internet (to name just a few).

We even had a professional photographer, Amanda Hall Studios, volunteering her time to take photos for the final product.

Registration for the 2022 Memoir Project will start at the beginning of the 2022-2023 school year in September.  Please contact Sheri Siegel, Mabel Kay Coordinator, at (856) 354-8789 or ssiegel@haddonfield-nj.gov with questions or to reply. Write on!
