Scanning party! Sunday, July 1, 1:00 to 5:00pm, at the Worthington Historical Society, 6 Williamsburg Road. During the Worthington 250 festivities, while the Ageless Ladies exhibit is open on Sunday, WHS will host a “scanning party” for the archiving of documents relevant to Worthington history. All are welcome to bring photographs, old letters and diaries, vital records, business and legal documents, and anything else that will fit under the lid of an 11- by 17-inch scanner. Archiving and cataloguing such documents is a core mission of the WHS, and donors can decide whether to make the scans accessible to the general public. For those who can’t make it on July 1, we can schedule appointments for scanning at a more convenient time. If you have any questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact Diane Brenner at 413-238-5593 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
