Please mark your calendars – the Friends of the Romeo District Library are pleased to sponsor the following event:
Post Cards from Michigan’s Past – 6 pm September 26 at the Kezar Branch of the Romeo District Library
Before email and text messages, postcards were the premier way to send a quick message to family and friends. Fortunately, these cards have been preserved and saved from generation to generation — offering a glimpse into a simpler time of carefree vacations around the Great Lakes State. Postcards actually offer double the fun — with the beautiful scenic image on one side and the heartfelt message on the back. A long-time Michigan-themed treasurer hunter, Dianna greatly expanded her postcard collection throughout the summer of 2010 when she was laid up with a broken ankle and found solace among the virtual shopping market known as eBay. The collection, at more than 100 to date, spans from Michigan’s coast to coast and from one season to the next. While many seem to focus on the waters, boating and lighthouses, the primary theme in the collection is that the postcards hold ties to Michigan.
