 Darwell Memory Project
Community seeking more stories
   In 2015 current and former residents of Darwell celebrated the community’s 100th anniversary.  To commemorate this significant milestone, the Darwell Memory Project was initiated to gather stories from local families. Long time resident Edie Richardson headed up the project and was delighted to receive more than 20 written recollections. These were complied in a booklet and sold during the fair.
   This year Darwell marks another milestone as we celebrate the 75th Annual Summer Fair.  We know there are more stories to be told and the call is going out again for residents, past and present, to tell us their memories of living in Darwell.
   To inspire more storytellers, we've posted the 2015 collection here, on the Darwell and District Agricultural Society’s website. You are welcome to print your own copy and we encourage you to share this digital version. 
   All stories are important, no story is too short or too long and we invite all families to make a submission to be a part of our wonderful history. Photographs add so much to a story, you are welcome to submit them as well.
   For more information please contact Edie Richardson at 780-892-2457 or email
