This past weekend, I was honored to be the keynote speaker at the North Castle Historical Society town wide meeting in Armonk NY.
The presentation, “St. Stephen’s and Armonk, NY: A 175 Year Connection” explored the historic link and personal stories that have united St. Stephen's Church and the Armonk community over the last 175 years.
The primary theme was Connections and Community, which demonstrated the importance of community by connecting the personal stories that occurred throughout our local history.
The next steps are to investigate ways to digitally facilitate personal connections. The goal is to establish self-sustaining programs that enable the community to access, explore, and appreciate the historic link and personal stories that have united the community over time and inspire new stories (and community engagement) into the future.
...more to come.
