Montgomery History Seeking Personal Stories for COVID-19 Archive
Montgomery History continues to document these times for future historians. Its COVID-19 Archive will provide a permanent repository, using multimedia accounts from residents, to ensure posterity understands how these historic events touched lives in Montgomery County, and shaped thoughts and actions.
It’s easy to participate. Residents can submit material in a multitude of formats (text, photos, videos, artwork and more).
The summer is fast approaching. This year will undoubtedly look different. What does a summer with social distancing guidelines in place look like? This week’s question prompt for the COVID-19 Archive is:
What summer traditions will you have to amend or cancel this year? If and when pools open, will you feel safe swimming? What about attending backyard barbecues or dining outdoors? Did you have summer vacation plans that will have to be changed?
Remember, these questions are to spark your creative juices, but you can write about anything! All reflections on the COVID-19 pandemic are welcome. Contact archivist Sarah Hedlund with questions or comments.
