Last week One Legacy was happy to sponsor the Troy/Maryville/St. Jacob/Marine Chamber of Commerce Community Expo, hosted by the TMSM and Highland Chamber of Commerce. It was a family-friendly event held at Triad High School, for area families and opportunity for businesses to showcase their products and services. Angela Ridenour, owner of New Mint Media and Managing Editor of The Family Historian Journal joined me for a great time meeting families, sharing the journal, and collecting stories. At the Expo we used our StoryStarter Cards to invite visitors to share brief stories about personal history. Pick a card any card!…..My favorite question/answer for this event was “What family talents did you inherit?” Popular answers were “playing a musical instrument, drawing, gardening, etc”. But, one of my favorites answers of all time came from 10 yr old boy with his family next to him. The family talent he inherited was farting! You should have seen the look on his mom’s face!
Thank you Dawn Mushill, and your great team at TMSM, for inviting us to participate again this year!
