His-story, her-story, what about OUR story? Join Mechanics' Institute on May 7th to meet representatives from other local cultural, historical and genealogical entities at this Open House. Find out about their services and how they are going about collecting, preserving, and disseminating our shared heritage and communal memory. Hear writers, film makers, and aficionados discuss insights into our past through presentation and interaction. If you delight in local culture and family history, or just wish to socialize over food and drink with innovative people who are transforming awareness of our history and culture, you will enjoy this special event.
