Checking in

Here's a quick update on what I've been doing here at Tincan. Continue to work on our small museums grant from Humanities Washington. We've recently submitted two grants and are looking at some smaller local grant. I've been trying to get people together for our once a month after school club for one of the local middle schools. Have not been too successful due to the lack of interest from older generation to share their history with kids, or they believe they don't have anything interesting to say. Which is not true we all have a story to tell and can learn from one another.
One of my new projects is to plan a Veterans Day event.
Also need to be working on a fundraiser, hopefully a wine tasting so if anyone has and advice please give freely.
And now I'm starting to conduct oral history interviews myself.
Busy, busy, busy but that makes the time go by fast.

do you mind if i connect you to a women doing digital storytelling with queer veterans? She's actually working on an intergenerational veterans' oral history project currently. I also worked with her as a VISTA and she is VERY helpful and acclimated to the VISTA AmeriCorps program.

That would be great.
