October Program and History Boat Tour

October Program

Wednesday, October 9, 2019 • 7:00 PM
Salem United Church of Christ
114 Morgan Street, Tonawanda, NY
(Please use Main Street Entrance)

One of the many advantages that has come as a result of our obtaining the Resource Center building three years ago is SPACE! We now have a dedicated room for the handling and storage of what are categorized as ‘flat artifacts.’ These include maps, posters, blueprints, extra-large photos, etc. Thanks to a number of generous donations and grants, we now have six map cabinets for proper filing and storage of the same. To top it all off, we now have a large table adjacent to the cabinets for easy viewing. (The former trek from museum back room, around the desk and bookcases to a table in the front of the museum was an obstacle course difficult to negotiate with a huge portfolio in hand.)

Our October program will be an exhibit of a sampling of this fantastic assortment of documents. It is a joy to let our membership get a glimpse at what has been formerly just too difficult to access. The program will also feature a brief overview of the collection by our archivist Ned Schimminger, followed by ample time to examine the selected documents on display.

Refreshments will be provided by Salem Church.
