Encouraging Connections

through Variations on Pancakes

Wednesday April 6th, 2016 - 6:00 PM

CALL (607) 273-8284 x 227 TO PURCHASE YOUR TICKET!


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.

A Taste of the Menu:
French Crepes with Cinnamon Spiced Apples and Dark Chocolate Ganache

By supporting this event, you will be supporting The History Center's GENERATION TO GENERATION series. Over the course of seven months, this series will provide an intentional focus on intergenerational connections. Oral history and genealogy training sessions, an inter-generational program on "Collecting and Sharing Stories through Maps and Photographs," a collaboration with the Dorothy Cotton Institute that will seek to build connections of those involved with social change within and across generations, exhibitions that encourage conversations across the life span, Eight Square Schoolhouse events, and heritage tours are a few key programs and events that make up this series.

The History Center's "Generation to Generation" tag line resonates with our mission statement, and is a central theme in our education and research center initiatives. 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.

Tickets are $46/person for this 4/6 event. Ticket sales end on April 4th. You can purchase your ticket at The History Center (401 E. State St., Suite 100), over the phone with a credit card (607-273-8284 x 227) or from a History Center trustee.
