We are pleased to introduce and welcome another new and timely addition to the Spirit of the Jerseys State History Fair muster roll for 2019 - Save Ellis Island, Inc.! What better time for this organization to join the ranks of participants at the as our country once again grapples with the heated issue of immigration. Along with the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island has become a symbol of our immigration past. It stands as a reminder that we are a country built on the foundation of immigrant moxy and determination against all odds; on the dream and belief that a new and better life was possible here. It is that dream that continually fueled the growth of our country from the early colonial period through to the present day. Most among us have immigrant roots in our own family histories and it is high among the goals of Save Ellis Island Inc. to help us connect to those stories. While its primary mission is to rehabilitate the historic Island buildings and create compelling exhibitions it’s broader objectives are to “communicate, tell stories and begin dialogues about those who bravely came before us to help build the country we live in today; remind us where we came from, and tell us who we are;” and to create “a place of learning and intellectual exchange.” So make sure Saturday, September 14th is on your calendars and plan to spend a few hours at the State History Fair at in Manalapan. Look for the Save Ellis Island table, learn about what they do and get inspired to connect with your own family immigration stories - whatever they may be!
