Thursday, June 28th, 2012 6:00-8:00pm @ The Harmony Library

Each year we live on the Earth, we gather experiences and lessons—the good, the bad, the ones we don’t want to repeat. The very best way to share this wisdom is by writing a book.

This session will show you how easy it is to turn life’s lessons into the best legacy you could leave for your family. Write your story so that it not only captures your history, but also leaves the reader with the sense of hope, direction and your unique perspective.

Jan (class of ’67) and Rob (class of ’65) will also share their gratitude for the unique values and work ethic they attribute to growing up in Harmony. Jan is the author of Rock Solid Confidence: Presenting Yourself with Assurance, Poise and Power and Rob wrote Connecting Pease, Purpose and Prosperity. Join us for an evening of lively discussion, laugher and refreshments.
