Jim Pelts, 82, and Mia Von Varga, a seventh-grader, have a lot more in common than they think.

The two were paired in The Legacy Project: Connecting Generations through Story, which was launched last year by Family Service of Glencoe. The organization partnered with Glencoe Junior High Project to connect middle school students with community elders through the sharing of stories via interviews. The project returned this year and is currently underway at Central School.
