Bring your stories, letters, diaries, photos related to WWI to the Library and have them digitized to be included in the WWI collection at the Connecticut State Library. The Salisbury Band will be on hand to perform music of the era.
Jason McGarry, a social studies teacher at H.H. Ellis Technical High School, received a NEH Common Heritage Grant for the Northwest Corner of Connecticut. The digital images and stories collected will be added to the State Library’s online archive and made freely accessible for public use. Mr. McGarry, a Navy Veteran and Commander of the American Legion in Salisbury, plans on sharing these resources not only in the classroom, but throughout the district.
