Greece Historical Society will host a free photo scanning and preservation event to celebrate Mother’s Day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 13 at Greece Historical Society and Museum, 595 Long Pond Road, Rochester.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to help our neighbors celebrate Mother’s Day by preserving their family memories,” said Bill Sauers, GHS president. “We are very pleased to welcome back a team of local photo experts who will scan, restore and print on location.”
Visitors can stop by during the day with up to 50 photos or slides and a USB memory stick or card. Association of Personal Photo Organizers members Kate Jacus, of The Photo Curator; Bruce Holroyd, of Digital Scan Solutions; and Nancy Carr, of Corkscrew Photography, will use professional scanners at each station. Vivid-Pix Restore imaging software will improve selected old, faded photos.
All visitors can choose one restored photo to print and receive an archival 5-by-7 mat provided by Archival Methods, a local manufacturer of storage boxes, portfolios, sleeves and other archival solutions. Visitors will enjoy a free photo booth session and receive a 4-by-6 print provided by ShawnOPhoto.
“This is the second year Greece Historical Society is hosting the free photo scanning event,” Sauers said. “It helps the community preserve their family history while taking a tour of our latest historical exhibits.”
GHS was founded in 1975 to collect, research and preserve the history of the town of Greece and surrounding areas.
