items will be donated or disposed of. If
you are still missing items from the tornado,

HOPE Lives On Project
Following the devastating tornado that
ripped through Washington, IL, on 11-17-13,
the Washington Historical Society and the
Washington District Library combined efforts
to sponsor the HOPE Lives On project
which sought to help Washington residents
tell their stories, share their digital media,
and help future generations understand and
know that the community always stood
Washington Strong, even in the wake of
an EF-4 tornado. Members of the
community can still share their story through
the Washington Historical Society website.
