Market in the Valley

Sunday September 11th

My grandparents always told me interesting stories about their lives and the people around them. One of my favorites was about Paul Buynon, who is said to have created 10,000 lakes in Minnesota while exploring the terrain. I always found it fascinating that one person could have such a big impact on the landscape.

We used to enjoy listening to our grandparents as children while they told stories. We liked how they used their life experiences to educate us about the world. Hearing how things were like when they were kids was fascinating for us. We enjoy hearing them because their tales frequently take us down unforeseen paths. As youngsters, we learned and gained an understanding of how to conduct ourselves through those accounts.

Traditions are essential as they inspire us, give meaning to our lives, and connect us with others. They provide context for the stories we share about ourselves and can teach children about their heritage. When passed down from generation to generation, these traditions help create strong family bonds.

Share your family’s traditions and memories with others this weekend at the Market in the Valley, or take the opportunity to learn about other peoples’ cultures. Remember the meals your grandparents made you as a child, and try to find that one special ingredient they used.
