Museum pictures you for the holidays

The Island County Historical Museum wants to use your holiday photos.

As part of the museum’s “Christmas In Our County” exhibit, its goal is to collect as many copies of holiday photos and family photo-cards as possible, to be part of a large collage to be displayed in the museum during the holiday season.

The special exhibit will be on display through Jan. 8, 2012.

Rick Castellano, museum executive director, said any photos, whether color or black and white, will be copied (most, while you wait) for the exhibit, and the originals returned to the owner.

“The photos don’t have to be from Island County, but must represent families and individuals from Island County,  past or present, and must be holiday-related,” he said.

In addition, lending your photos to this project for the holiday exhibit also gets you free admission to the museum. Contact 678-3310 for information.
