Conversations with a Windsor High School Student

Reminiscing is storytelling at its best! Real-life stories come back to life when sharing them with someone. Reminiscing is the act of remembering, sharing, and listening. It allows us to reflect on experiences and allows us to give the gift of ourselves to others. It allows us to know someone better and to see life through their eyes. You’ll be paired with a Windsor High School Student to share life experiences that have had an impact on you. Conversations will be held either on a zoom or phone call. A town employee will contact you to schedule an interview date and time. Contact Windsor Senior Center for more information and to be added to the list of interested individuals. (860) 285-1992.

When: Interviews will happen before May 28th, 2021
