OLD PHOTOS & MEMORABILIA REQUEST!
More and more of our wonderfully colorful local history is being lost every year as area residents move or pass on, leaving basements, attics and garages full of community heritage that is often just thrown away. We are starting a collection of interesting old photos and local area memorabilia to be donated for display in the Village Municipal Building. We are looking for items from the 1950’s and back to the earliest possible dates. Old family group photos, historical and special events, farming & job related, river & community scenes, church socials, prom, Senior class pictures, etc. Have a Prom dance card from the 30’s? A valentine from the 40’s? We are looking for donated items in good condition that would fit in display cabinets. If you have old photos but would like to keep them, we can scan and return to you unharmed. If you know the year and who is in the photos, we can add it to the display. The displays will take time to put together, but the more items we receive, the more interesting and meaningful they will be. Please help us keep our local history alive and available for generations to come. Bring in your items as soon as possible so we can begin preserving our history!
