The Ocean City Life-Saving Station Museum has launched a new project called “Save Our Stories” and is asking community members to send in their accounts as to how COVID-19 has impacted them.
COVID-19 has affected everyone in different ways and each story that is submitted will help future generations understand how the pandemic changed our local community. Questions such as “How did news of the virus affect your summer vacation? Your school age child? Your local business or your everyday routine?” will help the Museum to gather a variety of perspectives and accounts. The submissions can be a specific experience, direct answers to the prompt questions, or a combination. No story is too long or too short.
The community’s participation in this project plays a crucial role in the success of “Save Our Stories.” “This is an opportunity for everyone’s experience to be acknowledged and valued as what will be a piece of history,” said Christine Okerblom, Museum Curator.
