In partnership with the Scott County Historical Society, the local steering committee, Shakopee Community Center, and Chaska Library, End in Mind is offering an opportunity to record and keep intergenerational stories between family members in Scott and Carver Counties through the Scott County Historical Society’s Speakeasy Oral History trailer.
These interviews should be between an older and a younger family member, including but not limited to: Grandparent and grandchild; parent and child; aunt/uncle and niece/nephew.
Each interview will last approximately 15 minutes. Following the interview, a copy of the audio file will be sent to the participants in addition to being stored in a repository with the Scott and Carver County Historical Societies and pieced together in a micro-podcast of stories for the region.
