PENDLETON — Teenagers interested in creative writing, history and/or genealogy are invited to participate in a four-week workshop.
Creative Writing: Local History meets Mondays beginning July 10 from 5-6 p.m. at the Pendleton Recreation Center, 510 S.W. Dorion Ave. Open to ages 12-18, it costs $18.
The Pioneer Park Cemetery was the first cemetery in Pendleton and contains lots of history related to the town’s founding. Together, participants will discover things in the cemetery to write about. The focus of the class will be to show that when local history comes alive, it can connect people to their community.
Lessons in the class will cover writing, revision and research techniques. No experience is required and all supplies are provided.
To register, visit www.pendletonparksandrec.com or stop by the parks office, 865 Tutuilla Road. For more information, call 541-276-8100.
