Back in my Day: Stories from Childhood
and exhibition opening reception

Join us for an afternoon of storytelling and reminiscing with
members from our local guild, Story Circle of the Capital
District. Their personal stories of growing up in the region
will be be sure to move and entertain, reminding us of our
own favorite childhood memories. Refreshments served.
About the exhibition, Back in my Day: Childhood, Play, and Schenectady:
Are play and childhood toys a reflection of larger social,
cultural, and technological developments? This exhibition
examines that question, focusing primarily on cultural and
social influences on childhood in the 20th & 21st century.
The exhibit also integrates personal childhood experiences
and memories from members of our community.
