Two Springfield VT women are partnering on a project to collect oral histories from women of the Precision Valley who experienced the societal shifts of World War II with , “Beyond the Home Since 1941”. Jennifer Grant and Jaymee Jones are leading the project but anyone interested in being a sponsor, interviewer or videographer can contact Jennifer Grant at the Springfield Chambers office at 802-885-2770.
Grant is Executive Director of the Springfield Regional Chamber of Commerce and Jones is a senior at the River Valley Technical Center and working on the project as part of a special study in history. The goal of the project is to capture a video record of the memories held by women who helped keep the nation intact by serving in the home and beyond. The oral histories will fill a gap and supplement the region’s existing historical records. Currently they have interviewed four local women with five more interviews in a wider region this fall.
