Tell us your story of coming to America so we can share it on July Fourth
America has always opened its arms to immigrants.
As is inscribed on Lady Liberty’s base, “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
Did you or your family immigrate to America? Years ago? Recently?
If you did, we want to hear, and share, your story with our readers.
On July Fourth, the Times Leader will publish a special section about families and individuals who immigrated to America.
Did your grandparents emigrate Poland? Russia? Italy? Any other country?
Did you recently become a citizen? Are you in the process of becoming a citizen?
Did you or your parents flee a country plagued with war? Or strife?
Send us your stories and any photos or documentation you’d like to include.
Email stories and other information to Sarah Haase at [email protected] or mail it to Times Leader, 15 N. Main St. Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711.
Entries must be received by June 19.
