In a time when the world is collectively experiencing the same thing, It’s hard to hear each individual story. The purpose of this project is to share the story of individual business owners in downtown Astoria and stories of individuals in Clatsop County during the shutdown caused by the pandemic. The lights may be off; we may have locked doors and closed signs; however, there are still ways to help us during this time. We can do this together. Thank you to Kallie Linder, owner of Salon Boheme for writing some of the stories for me.
