Calling all Down East folks!!! We want your photos to be part of the Photo Archive Project!
Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center is currently working on a Photo Archive project that, when completed, will document the history and the people of Down East. The focus is to collect photos from each Down East community – old photos – current photos – of people/places and events/happenings. The photos will be scanned at a high resolution format and will include a credit line for each photo (credited to the owner of the photo). Great care will be given to protect the photos during the scanning process and will be returned to the owner as quickly as possible.
We will also be available at each of the Community Nights happening each month at the museum. At these events, you can bring your photos, and we'll scan them during the program. The schedule of Community Nights is below. Each Community Night begins with a covered-dish meal at 6:00 pm with the program beginning at 7:00 pm
May 22: Stacy - Sea Level
June 26: Otway - Bettie
July 24: Straits - Gloucester
August 28: Diamond City
September 25: Atlantic - Cedar Island
October 23: Promise Land
