Welcome to Heart of Maine Community Stories, an online platform for collecting and sharing stories about life in the Heart of Maine region (Penobscot, Piscataquis, and Somerset Counties).

We invite you to share stories about living through the COVID-19 pandemic and other historic events that have impacted our communities. We welcome anything created or collected by you including writing, artwork, photos, sound recordings, videos, interviews with friends and family, and materials documenting community organizations and events.
