Capturing Oral History at the Cedar Mill Cider Festival, September 22

Our community’s biggest celebration of the year will happen on Sunday, September 22, 1-4 pm at the JQA Young House Park. Safeway will provide the apples that our local scouts press to provide free fresh cider. Local food and craft vendors will be on hand with their wares. Lauren Sheehan and her string band will entertain. Retrolicious and maybe another prepared food vendor will offer lunch. The event is sponsored by Tualatin Hills Parks and Recreation District, which will also provide kids’ activities.

New this year, in addition to the Cedar Mill History tent, Cedar Mill Historical Society is setting up a booth to record “oral history” interviews. We’ll have video and audio equipment, and we’re encouraging families with older relatives to bring them along and interview them for posterity! Elders with stories to share are welcome to attend alone, also—we’ll have an interviewer available.

We’ll provide a short script of basic questions to help get the stories flowing. Recordings will be made available on our website. Each recording will be about 15 minutes. If we get a lot of interest, we’ll allow people to reserve times before the event. It’s all free, but donations are welcome!

Plan now to bring your family to the event. Like our Facebook page, where you can sign up for news and learn about our activities.
