About the Club:
You’re invited to participate in an afternoon of meaningful storytelling with the Life Story Club, where you can share and listen to fabulous life stories from the safety of your home! The Life Story Club is a social club for older adults, a place to meet other individuals with incredible life stories and to share some of your own!
Newcomers are welcome to join, whether you plan on telling a story of your own or just listening to the stories of others. At the virtual event, we’ll have a relaxed, informal story share in celebration of Pride Month and all of the progress we have seen in our lifetimes, and the progress still to come! We will address the following prompt questions: 1) How did it feel the first time you were surrounded by people you could truly identify with? & 2) What was your most memorable Pride celebration?
Date: Tuesday, June 15, 2021

The Life Story Club is a nonprofit dedicated to promoting healthy aging and reducing social isolation of older adults. We do this through the club meetings we run, where participants can socialize and make friends through sharing stories. We've worked with various community-based organizations, including public libraries, the Alzheimer's Foundation of America, as well as hundreds of individuals to share their life stories.
