Life Chapters Recorded Program on Monday, September 17

September 4, 2018

“You Lived It. They’ll Love it.”

Think of a loved one you know who has passed away, such as a parent or grandparent. Now, think of what a special treasure you would have if they had left a written or recorded story of their life!  People have many excuses as to why they don’t do this for their family.  Barb Quick, President of Life Chapters Recorded, Inc., will present a program on 1) why people should do this; 2) why she is doing this; and 3) how you can do this without it being overwhelming.  According to Barb, the single most important thing you can do for your family is to record your family narrative.  Her goal for the evening’s program is to encourage you to get started.

Life Chapters Recorded will be presented at the Gridley Public Library on Monday, September 17 at 7:00 p.m.
