Growing Community Project
The "Growing Community" Project was made possible by a Common Heritage Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. The project focus aims to tell the history of the people who have lived and worked in Oceana County, Michigan for the first time. On Saturday, June 18, 2016 we held a History Harvest at the Hart Library and Hart City Hall. During the grant period of 2016, we collected oral histories and made digital copies of family photographs, news clippings, letters, journals, and other materials shared by community members.
Thank you Shelby Middle School students!
Shelby's 8th graders in Mr. Kevin Joffre's classes made history on Wednesday, April 27, 2016 by sharing their stories about growing up in Oceana County. Thank you to everyone who participated!
