Bicentennial Organizers Want Your Old Covington Photos, Artifacts

The organizers behind Cov200, Covington's Bicentennial Celebration which will recognize the city's 200th birthday in 2015, wants your Covington-related photos, documents, artifacts, and memorabilia.

Cov200 is hosting a "scanning bee" on Saturday, April 12 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Behringer-Crawford Museum in conjunction with the Kenton County Public Library and other organizations.

Share your historical treasures with others as the community gathers at the museum to record and commemorate Covington's past, present, and future.

Writers and editors of the official Covington bicentennial book and documentary, library and museum staff, and trained volunteers will scan, photograph, video, and record your artifacts and stories as you visit. Loaned and shared items will be used for the book, documentary, community banners, exhibits, website, publicity, and other official activities and events sponsored by Cov200.

If you can't make it on April 12, appointments can be made upon request. Please contact Tiffany Hoppenjans, BCM Curator of Exhibits and Collections, at (859) 491-4003 or [email protected] for more opportunities.
