PROGRAM: Senior Reminiscence Program
SPEAKER:  Anthony Bowman, Education Outreach Coordinator, McLean County Museum of History


Anthony will lead a Senior Reminiscence Program, using items representing the five thematic kits that make up the program. Anthony will also discuss the background of the program and the benefits the Museum achieves
through this outreach.

A Senior Reminiscence Program uses authentic objects, photographs, and inquiry-based facilitation to enable participants to:

Recall memories, thoughts, and feelings of past life experiences through the handling of familiar artifacts and photos.

Share these experiences by telling stories, asking questions, and making connections.

Understand that, by sharing their memories, they are actively contributing toward the preservation of a larger community identity.

Connect with each other in a way that reinforces the notion that all participants possess—to some degree—a shared history.

The public is invited to attend this interesting and informative program. Refreshments will be served.
