GRAAMA has been honored for our Grandma's Voices/ Oral History Project.

The American Association for State and Local History ( the National Geographic of the Museum World) decided to use this Adam Bird photograph for its current cover. Thanks to former Michigan Humanities Council writers Joe Cialdella and Robbe DiPietro for a great article. We are truly humbled that almost every museum in the country gets a copy. The blessings continue!
