Last year we put an exhibit in the gallery space of our building with items related to military service through the county’s history. We put out a request in the employee e-newsletter for photos of employees and their families (past and present) serving in the military and received hundreds. We made copies of all the photos and stapled them to the wall in a collage, about 4 feet high and 80 feet long. It got quite a bit of attention — everyone looking for their relatives and pointing them out to others. Just the sheer size of it, with pix from the Civil War to Iraq and Afghanistan, really caught people’s attention.
