e-Vermont initiatives in Bridgewater were spearheaded by the Bridgewater Historical Society in conjunction with the Bridgewater Village School, town government, and other organizations. In just over a year, this team succeeded in bringing the following accomplishments to Bridgewater:
- Thirty-six netbook packages – along with weekly training for students and teachers – to ensure that every student in grades 4, 5 and 6 receives a 21st century education;
- Development of Bridgewater’s first ever municipal website – a govoffice.com site that will include a community calendar and a widget for the Bridgewater Flood Response Facebook Group;
- Two half-day genealogy workshops for Bridgewater residents;
- Professional consulting services for the Bridgewater Historical Society to evaluate the historical society’s collection, to advise on collection cataloguing and management, to provide guidance on digitization and storing photographs and documents, to offer suggestions for best ways to share Bridgewater’s history online, and to give hands-on assistance with developing an online index to the Bridgewater town history book;
- Read about many other accomplishments in the Bridgewater Re-Cap (pdf).
