Commemorating Flood of 2008

Monday, June 15, 2009

Blog DSCN0754 We were invited to participate in the university’s special event, “Remember, Reimagine, Rebuild,” at the Old Capitol Museum commemorating the one-year anniversary of last year’s historic flood. The Old Capitol was open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the free event, which included displays of flood-related photographs and research, audio excerpts from the StoryCorps oral history project, remarks and a musical performance.The event was attended and included food (always a plus).

Anytime we can give preservation of cultural objects, The State Historical Society of Iowa Historic Resource Development Program, and our department a little visibility, I’m all for it.
