When the former UAC closed in January 2014, the organization’s collection of old photos were fortunately taken to the Berea archives for safe-keeping. These photos are to be catalogued so they will be accessible resources for future generations and researchers interested in the history of the Appalachian community in Cincinnati. On April 11, 2015, folks from Berea College Library will bring photographs from our collection in their Appalachian Archives for us to help identify and caption. Of course, in doing that, stories about our old friends and places will be told.
Here’s a picture of the UAC staff. Do you know what year it was taken and who’s in the picture? Photos like this and many more will be available for you to help us review. And who doesn’t have some good stories about Larry, Nancy, Melissa, Maureen, Bonnie, Mike, Donna, or Cheryl?
Who is This? And What’s Going On?
When and Where
We’ll have good food and lively music and many chances to share stories and create new memories. This event will be held at Holy Family Church, 806 Hawthorne Avenue in Price Hill, Saturday, April 11, from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. Participants will be encouraged to scan and keep copies of photographs that are special to them. UACC will provide some food and drink and some great music from Rabbit Hash String Band, The Northside Volunteers, Susan Pepper and Jonathan Bradshaw, Green Willow, and Carter Bridge. The event will be a community celebration complete with food and entertainment. Feel free to bring a favorite dish to share. Also, if you have any old photographs of the Appalachian community, bring them along.
Plan on coming? Let us know! You can “join” our Facebook Event Page and we’ll keep posting photos and telling stories leading up to the event!
