Local Veterans Invited To Contribute to Online Photo Archive
Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Begun on Veterans Day last year, an online photo archive of local veterans will be unveiled during Veterans Day ceremonies at Miami University's Voice of America Learning Center at noon on Monday, November 11.

The archive, a collaboration between MidPointe Library, the Learning Center, and local veterans, will preserve photos of area veterans and serve as an ongoing record of their service to their country and community for generations to come.

"We are pleased that so many of our area veterans have shared their photos," said Steve Mayhugh, manager of MidPointe Library West Chester. "This is an ongoing project, and we hope that more veterans will share their photos to help us build this important record of our local community and our residents who have and continue to serve their country."

Photos and historical images of documents and other period memorabilia from the Civil War to the present are currently in the archive, and there is still time to have photos included for the unveiling.

Photos should be brought to the MidPointe Library in West Chester, or to Miami's Voice of America Learning Center for scanning by October 31. Photos should be marked with the veteran's name and contact information so that the photos may be returned.

Veterans can also e-mail their photos to Cari Hillman at the Library (chillman@midpointelibrary.org) or Rod Nimtz at the VOA Learning Center (nimtzre@miamioh.edu). JPEG images are preferred.

West Chester Hospital is joining with the Learning Center and Library in this year's Veterans Day commemoration, sponsoring the event and also honoring the many veterans who serve on its staff. The Hospital will have health screening and information available at the Learning Center on November 11 before and after the ceremony.

MidPointe West Chester is located at 9263 Centre Pointe Drive off Union Centre Boulevard, and Miami University's Voice of America Learning Center is located at 7847 VOA Park Drive, at the corner of Cox Road and VOA Park Drive.
