Special to the Citizen
The Morgan County Landmarks Society invites all interested persons to celebrate Georgia Archives Month and come hear Tommy Gregors, Executive Director of the Thronateeska Heritage Center, (THC) speak about collecting, preserving, and accessing historic documents and artifacts.
The THC created the South Georgia Archives to hold documents for Albany and Dougherty County, as a a creative partnership solution between the government and the non-profit, initially funded through SPLOST revenue.
More information can be found on their website, www.heritagecenter.org. Gregors has been Executive Director of THC since 2002, and Chief Operating Officer of the Flint RiverQuarium since 2013, and has previously been Project Manager for the Georgia Wildlife Federation, and operations Director for the Parks at Chehaw.
He also serves as a Board Member for the Albany Dougherty Inner City Authority, and the Georgia Association of Museums and Galleries, among other groups. The meeting will take place at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 19, 2014, in the community meeting room of the Morgan County Library on East Avenue, Madison.
And while we cannot promise the sweet surprise bonus gift jars of home made fig preserves that welcomed last month’s meeting attendees, we can promise a good and informative time! The public is invited and encouraged to attend, and all are welcome to join the Morgan County Landmarks Society, a group dedicated to the promotion, preservation, and study of our area history and historic landscapes.
