Women Empowering Women Session

July 8, 2020 @ 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM

Martha Rasche on Writing Your Life Story

The Dubois County women’s leadership organization, Women Empowering Women (WEW), will host its next event, virtually, on Wednesday, July 8 to hear Martha Rasche speak on writing your life story.  The session will be held via the Zoom webinar platform and begin at 11:45 am.  This event is open to all prospective and current WEW members. 

How much do you know about your grandmother’s childhood?  What would it be worth to you to know more?  As we live through the coronavirus pandemic, how much would your grandchildren and great-grandchildren appreciate knowing how this historic event affected your day-to-day life?  After a 25 year career as a newspaper writer and editor at The Herald and in northern Indiana, Martha Rasche started helping others to write their everyday life stories in 2014.  Since then she has worked one-on-one with individuals to compile their life stories, and dozens more have taken her eight-week classes to write their own.  If Martha’s presentation doesn’t inspire you to write your own stories, it certainly will make you realize the importance of getting your parents’ and grandparents’ stories in writing before they are lost forever.

Advanced reservations are required in order to get the link to the call.  Reservations should be made by calling the Jasper Chamber of Commerce at 812-482-6866 or by emailing chamber@jasperin.org by Monday, July 6.  The link to the meeting will then be emailed to all participants prior to the call on July 8. 

The mission of Women Empowering Women is to inspire women in business to reach their highest potential by instilling confidence, building networks, and promoting community in Dubois County.  Membership is open to any woman in business who lives or works in Dubois County.
