Ace Hardware & Hearth and Ace Home & Leisure, a Caldera and Bullfrog hot tub dealer selling new and used hot tubs and swim spas serving the greater Ellicott City, Maryland area, participates in Family Stories month.
“Memories are what makes each family special and unique. Keeping those stories alive and passing them along to future generations requires a little bit of effort, but it’s well worth it,” said Pete Peterson, owner of Ace Hardware & Hearth.
Here are three easy tips for remembering family stories now, and for the future.
Create a Family Gatherings Place with a Hot Tub – A portable spa in the yard or on a patio is a great way to create an attractive gathering spot for the family to spend time. Getting everyone to spend time together is the first step in creating the right atmosphere for sharing family stories. For couples starting a new family, a 2-person hot tub provides a wonderfully intimate way to share personal history.
Create Memory Craft Projects – Have children collect items from a family vacation such as leaves, shells or small keepsakes to create art projects. Design a jar that depicts a setting, such as sandy beach or wilderness. Even a plain glass jar filled with mementos from a city vacation can create long lasting memories.
Store Special Family Memories Digitally and Pass Them On – Have a special computer hard drive or CD designated to hold all family pictures and files with stories on them to capture memories, or historical facts. Duplicate and send to extended family members so they can share stories as well with their own families.
