This opportunity allows you to interview older adults about their memories, stories and perspectives on life in the Miami Valley – the experiences they have had, the changes they have seen, and more. Their stories will be shared on the radio and kept in Library archives. This SENIOR VOICES project is a partnership among the Dayton Metro Library, Rebuilding Together Dayton and WYSO 91.3 FM, funded by a grant from the DMH-Dayton Fund of The Dayton Foundation to enhance the lives of older adults.
