Covid Project Outreach
HELP THE BATAVIA HISTORICAL SOCIETY DOCUMENT BATAVIA DURING THE CORONAVIRUS

As part of our effort to chronicle the response to the coronavirus by our members and their families, we invite you to submit stories, anecdotes and images to BHS that tell the story of how Batavian’s met the challenges created by school closings and shelter-in-place requirements.

These stories and images will help us create a permanent tribute to Batavian’s– who “kept calm and carried on.”

BHS wants to hear about your experience with e-learning, how you and your families coped with the challenges and how you and our congregations reacted to the disruption of normal routines. Share your serious, poignant, funny, and inspiring successes and set-backs. We want to hear about everything – the good and the bad – because it’s all part of a story that has affected all of us in one way or another. 

Thank you in advance for being a part of this special project! 

Sincerely,
Batavia Historical Society 

Dan Hoefler
President
