The process will help participants recognize and value the individuals and incidents that shaped their lives.

This creative process has proven to increase feelings of togetherness and reduce apathy and confusion as it encourages self-expression and social interaction.

TFPSG serves the communities of Landrum, Tryon, Columbus, Saluda, Mill Spring, Green Creek, Gowensville, Campobello, Sunny View, Pea Ridge and northern Spartanburg and Greenville counties.

The group meets at 1: 30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month in the large meeting room of the Landrum Library.

Those who are interested in attending the free workshops may contact Richard Kennedy at or call 864-404-8001.
