Writing Forever Letters

This 5-week course introduces participants to the value of writing about their own beliefs and values to the people important in their lives, whether they be living or have passed on. With texts, tweets and instant messaging, the personal letter has become a rarity. This class will teach the value of writing Forever Letters to convey what has become important in the writer’s life and how the receiver has contributed to that. The class will be interactive in format and each session will provide writing practice along with providing and receiving feedback.

Lady at the Crossroads: Narcissa Whitman – Living History Performance by Karen Haas

Our nation’s history is the story of diverse cultures meeting and interacting in ways both peaceful and hostile. As a missionary to the Cayuse in what is now Eastern Washington, Narcissa Whitman was at the center of one such cultural intersection.

Using the text of many of Narcissa’s letters as well as portions of her beloved hymns, Karen portrays Mrs. Whitman as she shares her challenges, joys, and sorrows.
2:00 pm, MJ Wicks Wellness Center
