Preserving Life and Family Stories with Sarah Merrill--How many times have you said someone should record the family stories that are told around the dinner table or during the holiday get-togethers?  As time goes by, those stores become lost to future generations -- unless someone does record them.  Join Sarah Merrill in this 3-part series beginning Monday, October 20 at 6:15pm.  Merrill, a member of the Association of Personal Historians and a graduate of Middlebury College, will guide you in the various ways to not only record but bring a story to life.  Registration is required for this series.
