Beatrice, Hattie and Arthur (Another Amazing Week)

Trying to wrap my mind around what I like about this project once in a while: an impossible feat. I love it too much from the inside out. It's impossible to see it in aerial view. But here's something I like about the project, just one of many things: we don't just record memories, together we are making new ones too.

Beatrice Newkirk
Our Trip to the TV and Radio Station

Our writing class went on a trip last week.  We had lots of fun.  We met and heard from lots of people.  We even had snacks.  They let us tour the station. We saw ourselves on TV.  We went on the mini bus.  Everyone talked and read their stories.  Some of the senior center staff, including Vicki and Jay, came with us.  We had a good time.  We liked seeing ourselves on the big screen.

Hattie Lee Ellerbe
Our Trip to the TV and Radio Station       

We were the guests of TV and Radio Station WHYY last Thursday, 10/7/10.
Our tour guide was Ms. Willo Carey, who is an executive at the station. We engaged in an open, round table discussion on whatever subjects or thoughts that came to our mind.  It was a great afternoon.
I would like to thank Willo and our other hosts at WHYY for such a good time and the warmth with which we were welcomed.

Arthur Murray
An Amazing Week       

When we toured WHYY TV and Radio station a week ago last Thursday, it was a great experience to be welcomed there.  Everyone was so exciting and pleasant. 

Also, I was so excited when Mrs. Benita Cooper and our volunteers Mr. Steve and Mr. Jonathan came to hear me sing karaoke at Fox and Hounds Sports Bar.  It was so uplifting to see them in support of me.  I felt so overwhelmed to see them there. 

It was a talent show.  Well, I did not win, but did the best I could.  I have two more weeks of tryouts before the grand finals.  Maybe by then I’ll have another chance to be in the finals.  I’m going to give it my best shot.

I need your prayers

P.S.  I love you
