‘Remembering Home’ workshop for seniors: Historic New England’s Haverhill office is offering a new educational outreach workshop for older adults at community centers and residence facilities across the region. “Remembering Home” uses a teaching collection of twentieth-century objects and images – from Depression glass to Jello – to evoke memories of the way we lived. The three-week workshop is designed to stir up conversations about homes and housework, food and consumers, entertainment and communication. For one man, a meat-grinder brought back the smells in the kitchen when his mother cooked hamburgers. For another, a pair of ice tongs produced visions of summer days when the delivery man doled out ice chips to the neighborhood kids. At the end of the workshop some of these memories are preserved in personalized “I Am From” poems — a creative writing activity, which yields vivid imagery. The workshop will be offered at the Citizens Center on Wednesday, March 5, 12, 19 at 1 p.m.
