Hear community’s seniors tell stories of life and love

Want to hear some valuable life lessons?

The Guilford County Healthy Relationships Initiative, in collaboration with the Greensboro Public Library and Smith Senior Center, is hosting a StoryCorps listening session of pre-recorded life stories told by some of our local senior adults. These recordings highlight personal stories from seniors about family, friends, love, and tragedy in an effort to share what they have learned about the bonds between people.

This Guilford County Healthy Relationships Initiative StoryCorps Project will include listening to recorded stories, a poster display, and a presentation from the interviewers on their experience collecting stories. These stories will be uploaded to StoryCorps as part of the national oral history project.

The event will be Wednesday, May 3, 2017, at 10 a.m. at the Smith Senior Center, 2401 Fairview Street.

The Guilford County Healthy Relationships Initiative (HRI) is a new, countywide movement in Guilford County, North Carolina, with a mission of infusing the local community with information and resources to promote happy, healthy, and safe relationships and prevent the negative consequences of relationship distress. HRI involves a partnership that is led by Phillips Foundation and the Department of Counseling and Educational Development at UNCG.
