Story Circle –

 Mondays, 1 pm, at the Huntington Public Library.

Come join the Community Senior Center as we share in a Story Circle every Monday at 1pm this winter.  We’ll meet at the Huntington Public Library, but seniors from each of our three towns are welcome.  

A story circle is a group of people who share stories in response to a particular topic in a structured way that encourages full and authentic participation in both listening to and telling personal stories.  It’s a small group of individuals sitting in a circle, sharing stories—usually from their own experience or imagination—focusing on a common theme. Each person gets equal time and attention and no interruptions or contradictions, then the group reflects on the body of stories that were shared.  

If you are interested in attending, please indicate your interest prior to the day so that you can get the prompt we’ll be using.  Contact Martha Nye at martha@cscvt.org or 802 503 8155

Participants may come to one or more sessions; there is no commitment!
