About L&A Stories
Everyone loves a good story, and there are lots of them to share here in Lennox & Addington. The L&A County Museum & Archives in Napanee wants to hear all about them. The Museum recently launched the "L&A Stories” project in hope that the public will conjure up and share some long lost memories about life in Lennox & Addington.
Funny, heart-warming, nostalgic, historic... story submissions of all types are encouraged. It can be something that your grandparents did on the farm, that time your team won the championship, the downtown store where you used to shop... the list is nearly endless. Memories passed down from generation to generation are a perfect fit for the project, and stories from the recent past are strongly encouraged as well. Stories submitted will be shared on the County website and on social media. Photo submissions that help tell the story are gladly accepted as well.
Some of the stories received are expected to generate online buzz. “The museum recently posted a team photo on their Facebook page of the 1974-75 Napanee Juveniles Hockey Team that travelled to Sweden to play a series of games,” said Stephen Paul, Director of Community and Development Services. “The social interaction from the photo was outstanding, with family members commenting and sharing the image, as well as telling personal stories of their own. We think that the ‘L&A Stories’ project will generate similar interactions.”
For those that have a story to tell, an online form is now available. Stories and photos may also be dropped off at the Museum, located at 97 Thomas Street East in Napanee. For more information call 613-354-3027.
