We are interested in photographs taken prior to 1980 of buildings, sporting and social events, businesses and neighborhoods. You can bring up to ten photographs or postcards on Saturday, April 4 from 9:30 am to 12 noon and we will san them. Please bring a flash drive if you would like a copy of the digitized photos.
