If you’ve been attending Sisters U meetings for a while you’ve heard us say many times, “Everyone has a story.” Sisters U is all about sharing our stories. We do this every month, through casual conversation, by hearing from our Sisters of the Month, and from our guest speakers.
We’re kicking off 2019 with a heightened focus on our stories and an eye on how they contribute to our legacy. How do you record your story? Journaling? Collecting mementos? Through photography? We all have different ways of approaching our stories. The good, bad, and the ugly are all worth sharing because they make up who we are as a whole. Our stories are ever-evolving as we grow and move forward. We can’t wait to hear from you.
Our Sister of the Month is Terri Dilinger. We know you’ll be inspired by her unique story.
Life moves fast. How often do we make the time to pause, evaluate, dream, and plan? We have the perfect opportunity for you to begin during our May 2018 meeting.
