What are your fondest childhood memories? Which local shop did you frequent? Do you remember the best hill for sliding? We want to know!

Heritage NL is partnering with the St. John’s Farmer’s Market, and the St. John’s Storytelling Festival to host a monthly Seniors Memory Mug Up at The Market. This Mug Up will take place the second Sunday of each month from 2-3 p.m. at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market, 245 Freshwater Road.

The Seniors Memory Mug Up at The Market is a free and informal story sharing session for seniors, where people gather, have a cup of tea, and share memories. Seniors bring a memory of growing up, organizers in partnership with vendors at the St. John’s Farmer’s Market supply the tea and healthy local food, and everyone has a chat. Following the sessions, those who are interested can set up a time to have their stories recorded and archived by one of our story collectors. These stories will be edited into a booklet, which will be launched during the final storytelling session in March 2020.
