The Legacy Writers group meets at the Gathering Place the second Monday of each month at 9:30 a.m. According to Six Lapham, the organizer and a resident of Hamlet House, “The purpose is to share, support and encourage our written expression, mostly of family doings and stuff to confound the grandkids.” Any island senior is welcome.
