Society Saturday - Archives Crawl

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward

Archives Crawl is an event that has been happening in the Sacramento Area for several years. The concept and bright idea came from Portland Oregon. Representatives attended Portland's event and then brought the idea, the concept back to Sacramento. It has been a big hit.

Local Museum's, Library's and Archives plan this event out. There is a bus system in place for the day to take participants from one place to another. There is usually a passport of sorts handed out to each participant who in turns gets it stamped off as they visit specific places. Prizes at the end.................  and lots of learning along the way.

You can visit the  four main host locations  in any order and check out the archives and vendors listed below. What a great day - a long day - but a good one .........  being able to visit all of these facilities in one day. WOW!! Impressive.

Here is the Root Cellar SGS table with members Sammie, Charlene, and Devora (& Marilyn taking the pictures). All are ready to talk to crawlers, show off our library, show off some of publications and sharing the benefits of membership with Root Cellar SGS.  

Pencil in this event for October 3, 2015. This is usually held on the first Saturday of October... 

So here we are with our own Marilyn, Chris and Charlene.....for a FULL day of fun and learning....... thank you for all the pictures from this great day, they will be posted this coming Wednesday.......  enjoy!!
