In partnership with Girl Scout Troop 10615 and the Visiting Nurse Home Care and Hospice of Carroll County and Western Maine, Conway Public Library will hold a “Building Bridges through Stories” program on Thursday, October 19 at 6:00 pm. Girl Scouts will share stories gathered through interviews with three carefully selected local seniors that have made significant positive impacts on society. All are welcome to attend. Refreshments provided.
In keeping with the theme of the book, “The One in a Million Boy”, by Monica Wood, Girl Scouts will work in partners of two asking a series of questions to interviewees John Felber, Carol Westervelt, and Bill Aughton. Interviews will last twenty minutes each. Following this, there will be a group discussion regarding stereotypes about young and old people, the core qualities of friends, how intergenerational relationships can be fostered with people who are not our family members, and more. This program will serve as a fun learning experience for youth serving our community while honoring seniors and their vast experiences.
