BENEFITING: Rochester Area Community Foundation
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2011
I believe that it's important to preserve our past. The Fund for Historic Preservation, Restoration, and Literature at the Community Foundation ensures that historic buildings, artworks, and even trolley cars may be appreciated and enjoyed for generations to come.
Don't let our great barns, historical houses, churches, and museums fall into disrepair. Last year this fund supported the restoration of the Galen Historical Society's (in Clyde, NY) stained glass windows as well as providing archival storage containers for the society's historical records. Go to http://www.galenhistoricalsociety.org/Nov2010.htm to read more about it.
Challenge Grant: See if you can name any of the sites pictured on this page! I'll donate $25 to this fund any time anyone identifies 2 or more. Just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
