Photo Identification Event

May is Heritage Preservation Month, so the Pine Island Area Historical Society is planning a "Photo Identification Event" on Saturday, May 19 from 9 AM until 12 Noon at the Pine Island Area History Center.  Come and share your old photos of Pine Island - city, events and people - or just come to enjoy the photos others bring.  We would like to make copies of your photos for our archives.  This will be done onsite, so your photos  will be returned to you that day.  If you have photos of people/events that you cannot identify, we can work together to make those identifications.  A special exhibit of old and new cameras is being planned, and refreshments will be served.  We are going to spend the morning having fun reminiscing and enjoying the fellowship of all who come to share/celebrate our special heritage.  Please join us.  

Cheese Festival Open House -- Q & A (And More!)

During the Pine Island Cheese Festival on June 8, 9, and 10, the Pine Island Area History Center, 314 N. Main St., will be holding open house from 12 Noon until 5 PM each day.  Special displays in the new addition will recognize Lucille Hassler's many talents.  Various other interesting displays will be arranged throughout the house.  Come and see (hint:  Hint:  Q and A stands for "quilts and aprons")!
