Association to gather Grand County oral histories

Granby County Characters received a grant from the Grand Foundation to begin collecting oral histories for an archive of Grand County History.

The foundation begins its project with training of volunteers on the techniques of interviewing people of interest in our community.

The training will be held at the Granby Library meeting room, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 20 and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Aug. 21.

The trainers are from the Novela Project in the San Luis Valley, and have developed two projects with the towns of San Luis and Del Norte.
