Share your Coronavirus Story
We are living in a uniquely historical time, and we want to hear how Covid-19 is impacting you. The Hagerstown Community College Archives is collecting stories, diary entries, or first hand experiences of how our community has been affected by this global pandemic. This is an entirely voluntary and self-expressive response, so don't worry about grammar or spelling. We are more interested in hearing your voice and your stories. We are accepting digital as well as print responses, anything you would like to contribute to help document these difficult times.
