Growing Community: Community Training
The "Growing Community" project is supported in part by a Common Heritage grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. A collaboration among GVSU, El Centro Hispano de Oceana County, and the Oceana County Historical and Genealogical Society, its goal is to collect stories and digital copies of photos, letters, scrapbooks, and related materials that will tell the history of Oceana's agricultural communities for the first time.
On Monday, May 16, 2016, project team members held a community luncheon and training session in the Hart Community Room. Many thanks to Penny Burillo, Eva Berumen, Walter Urick, Courtney Sherwood, Kassie O'Brien, Nora Salas, Andy Schlewitz, Bri Luginbill, and all of the community members who made this event such a success.
Upcoming events include an all-day Community History Harvest event on Saturday, June 18 in the Hart Community Room and Hart Public Library.
