Tell your story

This story category serves as a comprehensive, non-specific location for stories concerning the lives of community members in the recent past – which do not pertain to the other categories. An example of a story in “Daily Lives” could be someone’s first time coming to North Hero, or the serendipity of meeting a person for the first time who became a lifelong friend!

Question prompts:

1. What was your first impression of North Hero?

2. Do you have a camping story?

3. If you have kids, what do they do during the Summer?

4. Do you have a bridge story?

5. How does your life change from the Winter season to the Summer season?

6. What was your experience like throughout Covid-19?

These stories may be edited, published and shared.

Tell your story
Tips for telling a great story
  • Tell your story as if you were talking to a friend or a relative. Make it personal.
  • Add photos! It is best if the first photo you add is a nice image of yourself so that people can see you as they listen to or read your story.
Tips for audio recording
  • You can re-record as many times as you want. Take a couple of practice runs until it feels more natural talking into your computer.
  • Try not to use a pre-written script so that your story sounds as natural as possible. It is ok if it is not perfect.
  • Try to speak as clearly as possible, and get as close to the microphone as you can.
  • Try to find a quiet place with no background noise. It is even better if the room has carpet. This will reduce the amount of echo on the recording.
