Communicating Family Values and Legacy Through Writing a Family History
- Monday, March 9, 2020 from 3:00pm to 6:00pm
- Museum of the Rockies, Hagar Auditorium
What is your legacy? Do your children and grandchildren know your family history? Doesn't it make sense to tell the stories before they are lost? Presenter Ben Phinney inherited a treasure trove of letters, scrapbooks, and photographs that provide clues he is using to augment his own experiences and interpret the past for the benefit of his family and others.
Learn why legacy matters and explore ways to organize and write about your own family's historical path. The presentation is part of the MSU Wonderlust Side Trip Speaker Series, held Monday March 9th from 3-5:00 p.m. at Museum of the Rockies Hagar Auditorium. Registration is required through MSU Wonderlust. The speaker series is free to MSU Wonderlust members.
Speaker Ben Phinney is writing a family history as a gift to his relatives and friends. Ben served in the Navy during the Vietnam War, worked in commercial and international banking for two decades, spent 20 years fundraising for educational institutions, and recently worked as a life coach.
