Des Moines, Iowa – February 18, 2014 – Everyone remembers when they hauled a treasured possession to school and told their friends why they loved it so much? Well, now they have the chance to share as grown-ups at Show & Tell Des Moines.
The public is invited to bring old photos, letters, family mementos, hobby or collection items or even an ancient artifact to show and tell the stories behind these items. Personal Historian Sherry Borzo will host the event at Angelo’s at 1238 8th St. West Des Moines.
Show & Tell events are happening throughout the nation and abroad in partnership with the Association of Personal Historians (APH).
This program is being replicated all across the country in communities such as ours. Anyone is welcome to join in the fun and become part of the conversation. Participants don’t have to show and tell – they can just look and listen.
It’s free, it’s fun, and the stories will warm the heart.
