We Want You To Tell A Story!

The Bemus Point Heart and Soul Project is looking for storytellers! Bemus Point Heart & Soul is a community building project that weaves stories and multimedia materials to present a picture of the rich history, culture, and identity of the Bemus Point Community. The project, which is sponsored by the Bemus Point library, held a community meeting in June to talk about the project and ask for community contributions and volunteers. Since the initial meeting the project has generated interest in the community, and a number of people have signed up to either record stories or tell a story.

The project would like stories about Bemus both past and present. The stories should be heartfelt, short, and reflect a personal connection to the Bemus area. Participates can either record their stories with a volunteer at the Bemus Point library or email/mail a written story for the website.  The stories will be used to create five “graphic story boards” that will be displayed around the Bemus Point community.

If you have a story to tell or would like more information about the project please contact the Bemus Point library at 716.386.2274 or email bemuslibrary@stny.rr.com.   The Bemus Point library is located at 13 Main Street, PO Box 428, Bemus Point, NY 14712.
