The 50th Anniversary Archives Committee has busily been gathering and documenting BCCO’s colorful history and will feature special items from its collection on StoryChorus. This committee, under the leadership of chair Joanna Davenport, is responsible for gathering, preserving, disseminating, and promoting fifty years of BCCO materials.
The Archives Committee is interested in both physical and oral materials. To date, committee members have gathered a number of artifacts, which are being sifted, sorted, and cataloged for the future. The complexity of preserving these materials is also being handled by the committee. Print, video, audio, and other materials will be digitized in multiple formats in order to create archive-level copies and copies that can be used to display and share.
Dissemination and promotion involves creating displays around town and in conjunction with our general celebrations for 2015-2016, creating prompts to help chorus members and friends remember the events and special memories from the past, and sharing stories that the committee learns along the way.
We invite you to share any items you might have. Please contact the Archives Committee about donating or loaning materials that highlight BCCO’s history.
