The literary magazine of Queensborough Community College, is comprised of stories and poems submitted by students in Queensborough Community College. Its objectives are to serve as a literary journal for the students of Queensborough Community College, to promote the cause of creative writing at the College, and to provide a forum for the creative work of the College’s student body.

Appreciation is acknowledged to all students and members of the Writers’ Club who have made this project feasible through their enthusiastic involvement and receptiveness. Appreciation is also expressed to the Office of Publications for producing the magazine in its usual professional and competent manner and particularly to Ardelle Donohue, who oversaw the production of the magazine in all its stages from the original manuscripts to its final finished form — and to the Office of Printing Services.

It is Mementoes' sincere hope that the current issue, while providing aspiring writers on campus with their initial publishing opportunities, will also provide the reader (the indispensable component in any literary process) with a genuine source of aesthetic pleasure and stimulation on matters of timely interest and concern.
