MIDDLETOWN - On Sunday, June 4 and Saturday, June 17 from 10am to 4pm the Monmouth County Historical Association invites members of the community to come to the Taylor-Butler House (located at 127 Kings Highway) to share stories, artifacts, and photographs for a forthcoming exhibit titled Turning Tides: Stories from Superstorm Sandy.
This exhibition will open in October at the Museum to mark the fifth anniversary of the Storm making landfall along our shores. It will explore the impact of this record storm and its effects on the people and on communities in this area, using their own words, photographs, and artifacts.
Crowdsourcing events like these will allow MCHA to compile a truly Monmouth-centric story.
"Sandy should not be forgotten after altering the lives of so many people and communities in such a dramatic way," expressed MCHA President Linda Bricker. "It is a story that will be of great interest to future generations and which should be documented while those impacted can relate personal experiences."
