History Fort Lauderdale recently launched “Your Story is Our Story,” a historical preservation community initiative to celebrate its sixtieth anniversary. The nonprofit is seeking family narratives from current and past residents of Fort Lauderdale to share and add to its growing living history of the City of Fort Lauderdale.
“Our team has logged an incredible and ever-growing library of information in the past 60 years, but despite our efforts, we understand that there will always be important stories beyond our grasp,” said Patricia Zeiler, executive director of History Fort Lauderdale. “We encourage our residents and visitors to share their cherished family memories, struggles and triumphs with us – however great or small – so that, together, we can weave a truly representative, accurate and vibrant literary and photo tapestry of our diverse great city.”
Those interested in participating can submit stories online here. Submissions will be automatically entered to win a free History Fort Lauderdale family membership. Entries are limited to one per person. Submitted stories may be shared on History Fort Lauderdale’s social media channels and website.
“We are thrilled for the community to join us on this exciting journey and become part of History Fort Lauderdale’s living legacy,” said Zeiler. “Together, we’ll work to ensure no story is ever forgotten.”
