COURT HOUSE - Everybody has a story, what's yours? The New Jersey Council for the Humanities wants to know. According to a release, water is especially important to those who live near any waterway or water source. 

 

For some locals, it provides a livelihood, for others, it’s a playground, and who among the population has not discovered peace and contentment at the water’s edge or been in awe by the power of a winter Nor-easter. 

 

Those who live in Cape May County, necessarily have an affinity for water. After all, the human body is about 60% water. Since this past June, the Council for the Humanities has been hosting hour-long discussions in every county of the state to capture personal anecdotes about the different ways that water matters to New Jerseyans. 

 

On Nov. 25, as the council will visit Cape May County to hear “What Is Your Water Story?”

 

The public is invited to the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal in North Cape May at noon on Nov. 25 for the opening reception of the Museum on Main Street traveling Smithsonian Institution exhibit called Water Ways and share a personal water story.
