More important than ever in 2022!
The Covid-19 pandemic has presented all of us with challenges we never envisioned. We all have shared in the lockdowns, mask wearing, food shortages, and some of us have been on the front lines of the “battle.”
The Springfield Art and Historical Society would like to hear about your personal experiences and perspectives during this unprecedented time so that we can preserve them in our archives for future research and education by generations to come. Responses mailed to SAHS, PO Box 336, North Springfield, VT 05150 or can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your name only if you are comfortable in doing so.
Thank you to the people who submitted stories. It's so important to capture the stories of the pandemic for history.
