Everyone remembers when they hauled a treasured possession to school and told their friends why they loved it so much?

Well, now they have the chance to share on a whole different level with Show & Tell for grown-ups.

The public is invited to bring old photos, letters, family mementos, or even an ancient artifact to show and tell the stories behind these items. Personal Historian Meghan Vigeant will host Show & Tell for grown-ups at the Chowder House in Rockland in their downstairs Speakeasy Wednesday, May 28. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for mingling, and the storytelling starts at 6 p.m.

Perhaps it’s an old letter parents wrote to one another during the war or maybe an instrument passed down through generations. The possibilities are endless. Anyone is welcome to join in the fun and become part of the conversation. Participants don't have to show and tell — they can just look and listen.

It’s free, it’s fun, and the stories will warm the heart.

Show & Tell events are happening across North America and abroad in partnership with the Association of Personal Historians. The Mission of APH is to support its members in recording, preserving and sharing life stories of people, families, communities and organizations around the world.
