Writing a Legacy Letter
Tuesday, January 30th at 6:30pm

A legacy letter is a written document that allows you to share your life lessons, express your values and transmit your blessings to future generations.

A legacy letter is not a formal legal document or a full-length memoir; it’s a brief personal statement, typically just a few pages. It is created as an enduring gift for your loved ones. This workshop is designed to introduce the concept of legacy letters and to help you craft your own through discussion and brief writing exercises.

This program will take place over Zoom. Registration is required.
