The Holliston Historical Society recognizes what an historic time we are living through right now and we would like to capture people’s thoughts about their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and the stay-at-home order.  We plan to collect all your thoughts in a binder or book that will be kept in the Society’s research library. We may also post some of your comments on our website or in articles in other publication such as Holliston Reporter. We hope that future generations will be interested in hearing our stories about everyday life right now and how life has changed because of this virus.

You may send us any stories (or photos, artwork, poems) you like, but here are some questions to get you started:

How do you feel about the whole experience?

What has it been like to be at home?

How is home schooling going?

How is working at home?  Have you lost your job or been furloughed?

How have your relationships changed?

How is your community or family pulling together?

What do/did you expect during the stay-at-home?

Did you start something you have been wanting to do and now have the time?

How will you feel when it is over?

What do you think or hope society will get / learn from this?

We plan to keep comments anonymous, but please include your age and any other information you feel is important (your occupation, school affiliation, etc.). Your submission will be considered an unrestricted gift to the Historical Society’s collection. *

Once you have your story, there are several ways to get it to us:

You may post your thoughts on the Society’s website
