In this time of the pandemic, I have been thinking about the past and wondering how did certain things get done without … a typewriter, telephone, computer, next-day delivery. The 1918 pandemic and how the village dealt with it.
We have been a community trapped and forced to slow down. What are the thoughts that have gone through our heads?
The Historical Society is asking that anyone who wishes to journal your thoughts, fears and reactions to please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for our blog. Keeping a journal for our community is part of what we are about. If you wish to see what others have journaled, go to our website at sagharborhistorical.org.
The Sag Harbor Historical Society is doing the best it can during this difficult time and would hope that sometime this summer we will be able to open our doors to the public. We had to cancel our annual fundraiser and annual meeting due to the virus, but we will hope to have our summer exhibit on our website and Facebook.
We are feeling the loss financially but need to move forward and would appreciate any donation you might be able to send to SHHS, Box 1709, Sag Harbor.
Stay safe and well.
