The Greeley Historic Preservation Commission continues the free 2014 History Brown Bag Series held on the 4th Thursday of each month from January through October, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., at the Greeley History Museum, 714 8th Street.
Peggy Ford Waldo, Development Curator for the City of Greeley Museums, will present "Preserving Weld County’s People and Places," on August 28, 2014 in the Community Room. The public is cordially invited to attend and bring a sack lunch.
According to Waldo, "Creating historical records such as diaries, stories, and photographs that survive over time is the obvious way to document and preserve the memories of people and places for posterity.
This presentation will feature stories and anecdotes related to several interesting individuals and organizations who individually or collectively helped preserve records, land, and information about Greeley and Weld County."
Waldo will speak about some of her favorite "preservationists," including Nathan Cook Meeker and the Greeley Tribune; the Meeker Memorial Library Association; the Union Colony Pioneer Society, Edith Steiger Phillips, Hazel E. Johnson, Lew Dakan, and the Weld County Genealogical Society.
This series provides citizens the chance to hear interesting historical topics, primarily focused on Greeley and Weld County, and promotes local cultural heritage.
