Share Your Memories.png

For many people, the Bridgewater Fair is the focal point of the summer, bringing to end a year's worth of work and beginning the cycle of planning and preparation once more.  

During the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020, the Bridgewater Fair was canceled for the second time in its sixty-nine year history.  Working with the Burnham Library and the Bridgewater Volunteer Fire Department, the Connecticut Crossroads Project collected memories and conversations to record the remarkable event, its history and how it connects community.

In March of 2020, the Connecticut Crossroads Project, in conjunction with Burnham Library in Bridgewater, CT and New Milford Library, saught to document the memories of the Pandemic.  People began submitting brief memories examining the questions above, and more.
