StoryCorps/Fromm Project Mission Statement
The mission of the StoryCorps/Fromm Project is to record, preserve and share the life stories of Fromm Community members in order to make them available on demand to family, other Fromm members and the wider world.
We do this to make and save a personal record of the rich lives our members have lived as they passed through and influenced some of the most significant periods in history. We are especially focused on making these stories of life and love available to future generations of family.
