Our main goal of this project was to include all the people of Willimantic. We wanted to get to know the people that we live in the same town with so we decided to make a book of the different people in our town and have them write their name, age, whether they live in the town or not, and a short question about Willimantic. We took their picture having them stand or sit on top of a round platform where a frog used to be.
Overall the project was very successful. We got at least 16 people involved in the monument. All of them were very willing to help and nice to us. It gave all of us a different view on the town of Willimantic and the people who live there... in a good way. We plan on placing the book in a small cafe on main street, Cafemantic, so people can read and write what they think Willimantic is all about.
