Valmeyer, IL: The Documentary

$1,382

27

In their own words, citizens of Valmeyer tell its story. From the first days of settlement as an idyllic village nestled against the bluffs in the beautiful Mississippi River Valley in Southern Illinois, to the dramatic events that threatened it’s very existence, to it’s rebirth on higher ground, this documentary is about Valmeyer. But it’s about much more. It’s a story of community and neighbors helping neighbors. It’s a story about perseverance and the strength to never give up. It’s a story about resiliency and the will to rebuild and move forward. But, mostly it’s about the heartbeat that drives small towns across this great nation. Valmeyer is about people.

Like the town itself, Valmeyer, IL: The Documentary, would not exist without the dedication and support of its own. Completion of this project hinges the donations of those who want this story told. 

Of course contributions at any level are greatly appreciated. For the producers, this piece is a labor of love and donations are simply to cover the basic expenses of production.

This project will be available on YouTube free of charge.
