One of our members, Bobby Dower, will be teaching the Legacy Letter writing course in McNeese’s Leisure Learning program in Feburary.
The Gift of a Lifetime: How to Create a Treasured Letter to Family and Friends.
Have you ever shared your wisdom with your family and friends? A legacy letter expresses your love by conveying your values, beliefs and gratitude. The letter can be created by anyone at anytime and is often done at the time of a significant life event such as a couples’ marriage, a birth of a child or grandchild, a significant loss, an upcoming surgery, middle age, and at the end of a life’s journey. Your letter gives you the opportunity to record what you value most and to insure the continuation of those values for future generations. Join Bobby Dower, a certified legacy facilitator, who will guide you as you create your heartfelt letter. It may be the most cherished gift you give your friends and family.
