Help Make the History of AOTB Come Alive
in a Book and Video
Volunteer to Help with One or Both
Saturday, Feb 19, 10 a.m.
The AOTB Board has authorized a project to develop a history of the community. The final products will include a hardbound book and a web-based product. The book will include a history of the community from its inception as well as the history of the land from colonial days to the present. It will include many early and late 20th century photos of the folks in the community at work and play.
The web-based product will include many "living history" video interviews of current AOTB community members providing their reminisces on the community's history. It will also include a web-based version of the book.
The project currently is being led by Philip Allen, Marc Apter, Wilma Coble, Pamela Duncan, Ed Johnson, Billy Keyes and John Moses. We are looking for other members of the community to join the leadership team. If you are interested in researching, writing, editing, video production or layout of the print or video/web product please attend our second hosted brunch planning meeting on Saturday, February 19 at 10 a.m. at my home at 1292 Magnolia Avenue.
Read the report of the first planning meeting held on February 5th.
If you have any historic photos of the community or its residents please bring them to the meeting or let one of us know so we can arrange to scan them for inclusion in the book.
The community has authorized a budget for this project but we need your help to make it a reality. We will review the books other local communities have published and start organizing the production of our effort. Please RSVP to me regarding your attendance at the meeting on Saturday February 5th at 10 a.m. at my home.
Be part of the making of our history.
