We have rescheduled Richard Starbuck from March to a later date to speak as Lunchtime Lecturer. On March 14 from 12:15-1:00 pm at the Spaugh Lecture/Recital Hall on the second floor of our Archives Building Archivist J. Eric Elliott will speak on the creation of the Archives traveling exhibit “The Languages of Flowers in Moravian Wachovia.” A door prize winner will get some take-home flowers. The exhibit is viewable during normal Archives’ public hours, 9:30am-noon and 1:30-4:30pm, Mondays-Thursdays, and the display is accompanied by selected artifacts from the Archives’ vault. The exhibit was written by Archivist Elliott and made possible by grants from the Garden Club Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County and the Old Salem Garden Club.
There are still a couple spots left in our next Family History Docent Training, set for March 12 from 9am until noon starting in the Archives Conference Room. Docents receive special training and extra information about our genealogical resources in exchange for volunteering at least thirty hours of time over a three-month period, helping family history researchers and working on genealogy projects in the Archives. Currently four Docents are fully certified and assisting in our work. If interested, contact the Archives by March 8 at 336-722-1742 or by email at email@example.com Docents are traveling on a field trip to Rockingham County on March 15 to learn more about possible Moravian connections there.
Our next Archives Commission meeting is Tuesday, March 26, from 6:00-8:00 pm in the Archives’ Conference Room.
