ITHACA — We all have a story to share… What would it mean to tell your story? How might the experience change you? How might it enrich others?

What would it mean to have this exchange across cultures and generations – between parents and children, the middle folks, and the elders?

In those intergenerational spaces lie insightful lessons about life, love, defeat, and transformation. These are meaningful stories that inform and entertain.

On April 6, prepare to delight in the human experience. Join us for a memorable evening with Paula Younger, story practitioner and founder of pancakemoments™, as she shares her thoughts on the distinctive power of pancakes and their connection to the wonder narratives that lie within all of us.

Come enjoy a variety of delicious pancakes, from crêpes to arepas, provided by the Carriage House Cafe, Coltivare, Purity Ice Cream, ¡Bici-Cocina!, and Kendal at Ithaca

The History Center’s “Generation to Generation” tag line resonates with our mission statement, and is a central theme in our education and research centerinitiatives. This GENERATION TO GENERATION series is an invitation to all of you to reflect on your place in this community, and your interactions and connections with multiple generations.
