CREATIVE AGING MEMPHIS
October 17, 2012

Experiencing the joy of seeing my grandmother "Gama" celebrate her birthday with a band playing for her, her family and friends in the nursing facility that she lived in was priceless. After seeing how much this meant to so many Seniors, I wanted to be part of such an organization that brought so much happiness. Shortly after my "Gama's" birthday, I was asked if I would be interested in being a Board Member of Creative Aging Memphis. I couldn't say "yes" fast enough and that was six years ago. In six years, I have seen Seniors move and grove to some of Memphis' most prominent musicians to reading stories written in creative writing workshops by Seniors who thought they would never be able to tell their story just to name a couple of ways the arts have not only touched but made the lives of Seniors. Creative Aging Memphis not only is providing arts to our Seniors, but Creative Aging Memphis also pays these artists for their performances and workshops putting dollars back in the arts. This wonderful organization is a win-win for everyone involved: Seniors, Artists and those of us privilaged to be part of this great non-profit...Creative Aging Memphis.
