BERNARDS TWP., NJ _ Mr. Local History, aka Brooks Betz, is seeking contributions from throughout the Somerset Hills to share a photo of theirs to help document the difficult times with COVID-19 in the community's life for an online Historic Community Collage.
"Take part with neighbors and community members in the Somerset Hills and share a photo to our community collage," he said in a release.
"During this time of unprecedented history everyone recognizes that being safe means social distancing. But that can’t stop us from being a community. Be part of the “Community Collage – Strength in Numbers” online collage to document these tough times."
Mr. Local History is asking community members to visit mrlocalhistory.org online to submit a photo that they think best represents they or their family during this crisis. "We will gather all the photos and create a "community collage" that will become a historic record of this time," he said.
Betz asked that contributors submit just one photo for family to become a part of history.
"Once the images are gathered, we have volunteers that will create an eCard and share it with the community," he said. The Community eCard and photo will be made available for simple download, he added.
