NO REGISTRATION NECESSARY, DROP IN

2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the United State’s entry into World War One. In an effort to help preserve this significant part of our history, the Kent Memorial Library and the Suffield Historical Society will be partnering with the Connecticut State Library’s Remembering World War One project to hold a Digitization Day. During the event, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, we will be digitizing old photos, documents, mementos, and other objects related to the war at home and abroad. Area residents and their family and friends are asked to bring in World War One related items and stories that might be tucked away in drawers or trunks. We welcome photos and keepsakes from men and women that will help us tell their stories  from World War One. Digital images of these objects will be made available online and preserved in the Connecticut Digital Archive. The only prerequisite for inclusion in this project is that participants are Connecticut residents and that items are related to World War One.

WOMEN AND WAR

AT THE SUFFIELD SENIOR CENTER

A PRESENTATION BY THE CONNECTICUT WOMEN'S HALL OF FAME

AND AN ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE WORLD WAR 1 DIGITIZATION PROJECT HELD ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 18

Women have been involved in military conflicts from the beginning of time; some as warriors, some as spies and others who made the munitions or simply called for peace.  Connecticut women are among the finest and bravest who have stood for their cause – sometimes defying gender norms, and often without the recognition they deserved.  CWHF Inductees prove that women are just as tough as men and will inspire others to shatter gender barriers. Learn about a teenager who helped save Danbury during the Revolutionary War, how Harriet Beecher Stowe sowed the seeds of conflict leading to the Civil War, and how Margaret Bourke-White’s photography brought civilians face to face with the war front for the first time.
