Community Archive Project: Love in the Time of COVID-19

Love in the Time of COVID-19 Poster

There will come a day when we will look back...But one way or another, every single one of us will be changed, regardless of how we remember it. We will all be changed emotionally and physically. But our love is stronger than COVID-19. And if we work now to help our future hearts eliminate the bad and magnify the good, then we will endure the burden of this stricken year, and we will know we have Love to thank for it.
— Paula Hodgins, Queen Alexandra resident

We are seeking art from Queen Alexandra and Allendale residents reflecting on these unusual times for a community banner.
