Encouraging seniors to stay actively involved with their communities, young people, and people of differing cultures.
“The moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issue from the decision, raising in one’s favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way.
Whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it.
Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.
Begin it now”.

And it was from this vision that the Mission of the Double Nickels became focused…Produce theatrical presentations using reminiscence theatre to reinvigorate the art of conversation and to communicate across generations and cultures.
