is an multimedia project that documents older career
waitresses and their contribution to the San Francisco
community. The project reveals that these women do a
lot more than just serve food. Most of them aged 50 to
84 have been working in the same restaurant for up to
55 years and have become respected, trusted and loved
by the locals. Making Connections is partially funded
by the California Council for the Humanities, fiscally
sponsored by the Institute on Aging and will be
archived at the San Francisco Labor Archives and
Research Center. The photos from the project exhibited
at the San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery on April
8-9, 2005, will hang in City Hall from April 13th
through June 22nd. Weekend America, a radio show based
interviewed for this project. The radio show is
archived on http://www.weekendamerica.org.
