CCHM Speaker Series “Growing Up In Vancouver (WA): A Community Archive”
July 7 @ 7:06 pm
Clark County Historical Museum’s 2022 Speaker Series continues on Thursday, July 7, with “Growing Up in Vancouver (WA): A Community Archive” presented by CCHM executive director, Brad Richardson. The event will occur in-person at the Clark County Historical Museum. Doors open at 5 p.m. and the event begins at 7 p.m.
The ubiquitousness of social media has provided many opportunities for people to interact with others around the world. Beyond simply a means to stay in touch with family and friends, social media has encouraged the growth of a range of special interest groups and pages. In this month’s presentation CCHM explores one such page, Growing Up in Vancouver Washington, and how one man’s vision to connect with others who grew up in the area has become a community trove of memories, images, and stories that enrich the narrative of our past.
“Pat Klinger, through the development of the Growing Up in Vancouver page, created an information archive that contains a wealth of knowledge about Vancouver’s history,” said CCHM executive director, Brad Richardson, “His love for Vancouver and its history is reflected in his dedication to building this community archive. We are honored to be able to be a part of his legacy and give back by sharing it to the broader community.”
The CCHM Speaker Series is sponsored by the Clark County Historic Preservation Commission and Versa Events (formerly Wager Audio). General admission is $5; seniors and students are $4; children under 18 are $3; and the evening is free for CCHM members, veterans, and active-duty military personnel.
Attendees are encouraged to arrive early, as seating is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
