ORAL HISTORY AND THE COMMUNITY
Preserve the stories of your community by producing a 3-5
minute digital video recording of individuals retelling their experiences and recalling
their memories. Share these stories with others through the 2013 Vanport Oral

This is an opportunity to explore and record the unique
memories of the people around you. What better time than now to record the
histories of relatives, local newsmakers, and beloved community members.
