A project is in the works for the Shirley Historical Society's annual Valentine's dinner and I hope there will be some on the boards that can contribute. We are seeking pictures of love!
I am currently scanning in newspaper clippings dating from about 1930 to 1960 of engagement and/or wedding anouncements of individuals who were either born or once lived in SHIRLEY, Indiana. (These clippings were saved by a now-deceased Shirley resident who donated them to the historical society.)I am also collecting real wedding pictures and/or other snapshots of couples who still live in Shirley (scanning them and then giving the pics back) or who once lived in Shirley. The goal is to put together a large display of love! Okay, well, it will be a display of as many newspaper clippings, pictures, and photos pertaining to marriage and/or couples in love (who have some connection to Shirley, Indiana).
If you or one of your relatives or friends has ever lived in Shirley or still lives in Shirley or you are a descendent of a former Shirley resident and would like to have your announcement and/or wedding picture featured in this display, please email me directly.
The Valentine's Dinner and "Shirley in Love" collection display will be held on Saturday, Feb 8, 2003 from 4-7 pm at the Shirley Park Community Building for those interested in attending.
