Meaningful Memories

Meaningful Memories

Nostalgia, learning experiences, meaningful memories... This book is filled with these from a man who grew up in a strong Irish-Catholic community in the North End of Saint John in the 1950s and 1960s, went on to practise law and then become a law professor and consultant in Toronto, and most recently, joyfully embraced RVing and living in an active retirement community. But besides dusting these memories off for enjoyment, John G. Kelly has a larger purpose. By cleverly showing how his past experiences and even his F.A.I.L.s (first attempts in learning) have positively impacted his future, he demonstrates how we can all learn from our past and use this knowledge to live life to the fullest as a member of an active, caring community. Filled with humorous anecdotes, recollections of a bygone era, reflections on community, and a unique outlook on how to get the most from life, Meaningful Memories has something for anyone who likes a good story. However, for anyone from Saint John, New Brunswick (or who grew up in any of the Atlantic provinces for that matter), fellow RVers, or 65+ young/olds (YOLDS) looking to enjoy active retirement to the fullest, you will not be able to put this book down!
