The Fulton Public Library is continuing to work on the second edition of its Memoir Project with a goal of helping people who have worked or attended school in Fulton to create a memoir about their experiences.
“In 2013, our first Memoir Project supported 41 people as they crafted a memoir essay,” said Betty Mauté, library director. “Those essays were collected in a book entitled Fulton: The Stories From Our Past That Inspire Our Future, which has sold over 500 copies. The funds we raised from those book sales are helping the Library provide this year’s Memoir Project, as well as other cultural programs.”
The theme for this year’s Project is Business and Education. Participants are signing on to gather their memories of working in a local factory, owning a family-run business, recalling a humorous anecdote from school or honoring an influential teacher. To assist them in their work, the library is working with the Project Coordinator, Jim Farfaglia, to hold a series of “theme nights.”
Mauté announced the library’s theme nights as follows:
6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 22 — Working in a Local Industry or Factory (such as Sealright, Nestle, Armstrong, Miller)
6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 5 — Owning or Working in a Small Business
6:30 p.m. Tuesday June 24 — Attending a Fulton School or Recalling a Favorite/Influential Teacher.
The project will continue through the summer, but those interested should contact the Library now to register.
For more information or to sign up as a participant, contact the Fulton Public Library at 592-5159 or Farfaglia at 402-2297 or via email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Memorial Day is a time for family picnics and parades.
More importantly however, it’s also a time we honor our veterans and pay homage to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in serving our country. As a state, we can always do more for those who have fought for our freedoms. To that end, I sponsor and support a number of bills that will improve the lives of our veterans. Continue reading
