Archival Storage Show & Tell by Kate Jacus

When: Saturday, August 1st, 10:00 a.m. (weather permitting)
Where: Back yard of the Greece Museum, 595 Long Pond Rd

Get a close up look at various storage options for your family heirlooms, from photo-graphs to newspaper clippings, books to textiles. We’ll talk a little about the science behind “archival-quality” and then show you various boxes, binders, and enclosures and how to safely pack objects. We’ll have plenty of time for questions so you’ll leave with storage recommendations for your own collection.

This program will be outside in the shade of our back yard. Please bring your own lawn chair and a mask. Social distancing will be maintained and hand sanitizer and plastic gloves will be available if you wish to touch any of the storage options.

Kate Jacus is the marketing coordinator at Archival Methods, a local manufacturer and supplier of archival storage and presentation products. She is also the founder of The Photo Curator, LLC, and a certified professional photo organizer helping families and businesses manage their photo and heirloom collections. She was our guest at the June 9th Zoom presentation.

Author of Zoo History at Museum on July 12

Since it appears likely that our September program, The History of Seneca Park Zoo, will be presented via Zoom, we have invited Maureen Whalen, the author of the first and only comprehensive history of the zoo and a long-time Society volunteer, to sell copies of her book on Sunday, July 12 between 1:30 and 3:30 pm at the museum. We will be following social distancing and masking guidelines. Maureen will be selling the books from the front porch of the museum and visitors will be able to stay outdoors while waiting to purchase a copy. The history retails for $25.00 and a portion of the sale of each book will go to the Greece Historical Society.

Selections of other books from our Museum shop will also be available that day. Cash or personal checks only.
