The Village of Rockville Centre implemented a storytelling workshop for its senior citizens. A series of five workshops taught the basics of effective storytelling, not only encouraging the seniors to share their stories, but teaching them to do it effectively and easily. This program has benefitted the seniors who have participated and has also brought the entire community together in a positive way. In addition, the performances were taped and edited and will soon be shown on the Village’s cable television channel.
