Local ‘Journey Stories’ sought

Cozad’s Aug. 30 opening of the National Smithsonian Exhibit “Journey Stories” is quickly approaching. People visiting the 100th Meridian Museum from Aug. 30 to Oct. 6 will be able to view and experience journey stories that have made our country what it is today. This is an exciting time because we all have the opportunity to also become part of the exhibit by sharing our own journey stories.

“Journey Stories” notebooks have been placed in the public libraries in Cozad, Elwood, Gothenburg, and Lexington and in the Senior Centers in Eustis and Overton. Whether you were born in another country or just another state, share the journey that brought you to your current home. The notebooks provide information to help you get started writing or telling your journey story and people to call if you want help.

The exhibit will close on Oct. 6, but the local journey stories will become permanent records of the 100th Meridian Museum. Journey stories are encouraged prior to the Exhibit but may still be submitted during the Exhibit and after it closes.
