History Project: South Elgin Stories

FB South Elgin StoriesJoin us on Zoom or live at Gail Borden Library South Elgin to share an evening of South Elgin stories and memories as part of a people’s history project about our Village. The Village of South Elgin is compiling our history through personal stories and tales. Do you have a fun, interesting or touching anecdote about life in the Village – whether it's from the 1950s, the 1990s or anytime in between? Share your tale live during South Elgin Stories, or submit a written version to the library at seemail@gailborden.info.

The Village of South Elgin will make these oral histories available via southelgin.com to give future generations a glimpse of the South Elgin we know or remember. The theme for the debut evening of South Elgin Stories is How you came to work or live in South Elgin. And if you're not yet ready to share a story, you are still welcome. We love listeners too! It’ll be fun! Watch for details at facebook.com/southelginillinois
