Who better to help tell Hanover's story than its own residents?
Director of Recreation Sherri Walden is encouraging residents and members of the public to look around their homes to see if they have any items that they wish to display during the upcoming Culture Days Archives Open House.
This could come in the form of: photos, utensils, books, awards, pamphlets, souvenirs, toys, postcards, literature, medals, bottles, magazines, badges, flags, military memorabilia or objects pertaining to music, schools, medicine, sports manufacturing entertainment, home or government.
The Archives display will be broken into eras including: prior to the 1900s, World War I, The Roaring Twenties, The Great Depression, World War II, The Baby Boom and The 60s and up.
Walden says residents can contact the Heritage Committee or just bring their item the day of the Archives Open House.
If the item is to large to bring she encourages individuals to photograph it and bring in the photo.
Walden says it all about preserving the past.
So if you have a piece of Hanover's history or past, you are encouraged to display it at the upcoming Archives Open House.
She says its just a matter of displaying it for a day and then you can bring it back home.
The Culture Days Archives Open House will be held Saturday September 28th at St. Matthewâ€™s Evangelical Lutheran Church from 10 am till 1 pm.
