Often times, we don't realize just how precious old family photos are until it's too late. The events of May 2011 inspired the the formation of the National Photo Rescue group. To help you preserve those memories for a lifetime, they're inviting you to bring your old pictures to their Save Your Photos Day next month. Outreach Coordinator Thad Beeler gave News Talk KZRG the details.
"It is September 27th at the Joplin Family Worship Center from 9 a.m to 4 p.m. Come in, bring your photos that are so important to you, that you don't want to lose. They'll be digitally scanned, and then you can put it on the media that you choose."
To help make that job easier, Kodak Alaris donated some new equipment. E-Z Photo Scan President Rick Lippert tells News Talk KZRG all about the gift to the National Disaster Photo Rescue.
"We came through with the donation of the high speed scanner that can scan thousands of pictures, and now we can give them not only the technology to recover, but the ability to go out and save within the community."
The event is completely free of charge at Joplin Family Worship Center located at 5290 E. 7th Street. The remaining pictures from the Lost Photos of Joplin project will be available for viewing.
