Now is the time to Write It Down. Your history is Woodbridge’s history too, so please share it.
Capture and share your stories, journal entries, photos, calendars, notes, even the jokes that are lifting your spirits—anything that is special to this time, so they can be shared not just now amongst our neighbors and friends but later with our grandchildren and future historians. The story of Woodbridge and its residents during the pandemic is History.
In addition to being added to AWHS’s permanent collection, we hope to make a selection for a display to be called We are Woodbridge History.
Some things you can write about include: How are you spending your days? Are you self-isolating, working from home, on the frontlines as a healthcare worker, or an essential employee? Tell us how your life has changed and what your daily routine is like. Are you cooking, hiking, exercising, binge-watching Netflix, helping your children with schoolwork, reading? Who is with you? What are you eating? How do you feel? What do you think about? What are you grateful for? Your documentation can be written as a:
Journal; diary entry; news article; poem; report; letter.
You may include a photograph, draw/paint a picture, or copy a good meme. Make it personal. Make it informative. Then please email OR mail your submissions to AWHS. It is helpful to include your name, address, and age, but this information is not required. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; subject line: Coronavirus 2020, or Mail it to Amity and Woodbridge Historical Society, 1907 Litchfield Turnpike, Woodbridge, CT 06525. We look forward to receiving your submissions. Be a part of History!!! The Amity and Woodbridge Historical Society wants to hear from you!
