Group Photo to Show Global Support for Wood Co. Historical Center
To support the national campaign for preservation #ThisPlaceMatters, a group photo will be taken at the Wood County Museum, 13660 County Home Road in Bowling Green, this Thursday, May 16 at 5:30 PM in the Museum, in the “For Comfort & Convenience” exhibit. This event is free & open to the public.
This Place Matters is a national campaign that encourages people to celebrate the places that are meaningful to them and to their communities. During the month of May, the community is encouraged to post on social media photos of the Wood County Museum, or other cultural institutions that are important to them, using the hashtag #ThisPlaceMatters.
This campaign isn’t just about photography – it’s about telling the stories of the places we can’t live without. Through This Place Matters, the National Trust hopes to encourage and inspire an ongoing dialogue about the importance of place and preservation in all of our lives that lasts far beyond the month of May.
More information about the campaign is available at woodcountyhistory.org/thisplacematters.html or from the Facebook page for the National Trust.
