Thanks to all of our sponsors and government officials who came and participated, our Connecting Elders Luncheon was a hit!  It was an honour to host our honourable guests and Indonesian elders who came and support us wholeheartedly.  Kudos to Mindzzle group and the Oral History Project team.

For those of you who missed the kick off, here’s our Prezi presentation that explains a bit of what we’re trying to do LANSIA Oral History Presentation. Please click here for some images taken at the Launch.
