HOPE Lives On: 
Sharing stories of survival and hope 
in the wake of devastation

Following the devastating tornado that ripped through Washington on 11-17-13, the Washington Historical Society and Washington District Library are teaming up to bring “HOPE Lives On”, a project that aims to preserve the history of this tragic event through shared stories and digital media from the community. Washington residents are encouraged to share their story and media, regardless of how they were affected or involved. These written accounts and digital media will be preserved for future generations to come --- helping them know that Washington always stood STRONG 
even in the face of an EF4.

**We are now accepting video/photo related to 11-17-13!! Have photos of that EF4? A video? It's aftermath?
