The Nose for News Retriever : Asheville's Living Treasures


Local News from The Trail Blazer Team’s Official “Nose for News” Retriever

Asheville Trail Blazer Real Estate Official  Nose for News Retriever

Not long ago, The Trailblazer Team's Official Nose for News Retriever (photo above)  found a report about Senior Adults enjoying sharing  life experiences with younger people and students.

The report talked of ways to:: Increase interaction and exchange of information between the younger and older generations; to enrich the community by honoring and preserving wisdom keepers and culture bearers; and to support our youth’s energy and enthusiasm for learning. To be honest, that wasn't news to us, as we have noticed an upswing in clients seeking homes that will work across the generations -

But it did remind us to let you know about of Asheville’s Living Treasures Organization that  “publicly honors elders who have generously served our community with kind hearts and good deeds." We love the fact that elder's oral histories are recorded, archived, and made available to the public at the Ramsey Library of UNC Asheville.

Who Are Asheville's Living Treasures?

Asheville's Living Treasures are people from many, many walks of life:  teachers, artists and artisans, writers, farmers, good, photographers,  architects, dancers, historians, naturalists, environmentalists, wellness workers,  journalists, musicians… . The University of North Carolina at Asheville's OSHER  LIFELONG LEARNING INSTITUTE -formerly the North Carolina Center for Creative Retirement at UNCA -partners with Asheville Living Treasures. ( OLLI is housed in their own building, the Reuters Center, located right on the campus of UNC Asheville.)

 If you are an Older Person relocating to Asheville, you may decide to make a stop at OLLI right away. OLLI promotes, “ … thriving in life’s second half through programs in lifelong learning, leadership, community service and research.”   Let us know if you'd like a map.
