Throughout 2012, in honor of Eugene’s 150th birthday celebration, Story Catchers partnered with the City of Eugene to offer 150 Eugene residents the opportunity to record and preserve their stories, memories, and reflections. We completed 120 forty minute recordings, involving more than 200 people from a broad range of our community. This project was a wonderful experience for us … and we look forward to bringing forth more stories as Story Catchers moves into new directions.
Our deepest thanks to all of you who participated and helped to make the Eugene@150-Story Catchers project a success!
