Please look back in your collections and let us have the files or borrow any prints you might have which show the people and places important in the club’s life. If you have electronic files we would appreciate your attaching them to an email which explains who is in the photo and where it was taken.
If you send prints we will scan them and get the original back to you. Please pencil the names and event on the back along with your name and call.
