    The year 2020 saw new opportunities to outreach and reimagine ways to engage our local community. A request went out on our Oviedo Historical Society Facebook Page to ask the community to share their stories growing up here in Oviedo, collective memories, and share about the people that made a difference in oviedo and made a difference in the lives of our citizenry. We've collected and shared the most notable below.
