We are eternally grateful for Valerie Leff for her years of leadership and deftly transitioning the business to a nonprofit, and for Juanita Leff, whose generosity from the inception of WWW has helped to create a thriving business and successful organization that we are today. 


I thoroughly enjoyed the Life Stories Workshop provided by the Senior Center of Fairfield and the Westport Writers' Workshop.  The opportunity to be challenged
to put pen to paper and begin to develop new ideas and share them with other aspiring, older writers was inspirational."
