Memories of Bonnie Doon
Volunteers with a seniors/history sub-committee have started interviewing seniors in Bonnie Doon, recording the memories of Bonnie Dooners who have lived in the neighbourhood for some time. The goal is to interview 50 people in 2016. A big thank you to Dr. Anne-José Villeneuve from Faculté Saint-Jean who recently led a free interviewing skills workshop. We are off to a great start, but if you would like to be an interviewer or know of someone to be interviewed, please contact Margaret at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780.469.1179.
(Note: no problem if the interviewees you have in mind are not currently living in Bonnie Doon.)
