Old photos sought for 175 celebration
The Decatur 175 Committee, which is organizing a celebration in August of the city's anniversary, are seeking old photographs of Decatur that will be considered for inclusion in a souvenir book for the event.
The photos will be scanned this Saturday during the Spring Has Sprung promotion of the Decatur Small Business Association. The scanning will be done at The Next Page Bookstore and More at Second and Monroe Sts. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The scanning will take place while the owners of the photos wait, a committee announcement said. Those who own the pictures will be credited in the souvenir book.
Committee members ask that as much information as possible be provided about each photograph.
At the bookstore on Saturday, committee members will also take orders for the souvenir book and other 175th anniversary publications and will sell Decatur 175 share certificates.
