  • Biographer (Mini-Bios) 2019 - 2020:      Tammy Brown

 NOTE: Several years ago our board noticed that as our group continued to grow from a small group of neighbors that many members did not know each other very well. To fill this need, we started a Mini-bio segment at our meetings. The Biographer has prospects fill out an information sheet asking about these areas – her childhood and youth including memories of hometown, siblings, high school/college years; her adult years including work spouse, kids, grandkids, interests; a historical or personal event, philosophy, or axiom, that impacted her life; hobbies/interests; and advice or words of wisdom to pass on to future generations. The Biographer then compiles this and presents one at a meeting. We have found we have many similar experiences and much more in common than we realized.
