WORLD WAR ONE DIGITIZATION PROJECT
AT THE SUFFIELD SENIOR CENTER, 145 BRIDGE STREET
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.
