Celebrating History (2016)

K.E.E.P.’s History Committee continues to learn and have fun.  I thought I’d share on our more recent activities.

Auditorium4AwardsIn April we helped judge student-produced documentaries for the Utah History Day State Competition.  The top winners in various categories will be competing this month in Washington D.C. at the National History Day Contest.  It was a great pleasure to meet youth so enthusiastic about history and so darn INCREDIBLY SMART and TALENTED!  Go, Utah!

In May we dropped in at the Salt Lake County Archives during their 30 Year Anniversary Celebration… where we chatted with more history-loving folks and received a nice tour.  We greatly appreciate the help they have given us.  And it was nice meeting others that also enjoy utilizing the SLCo Archives.  (Have you ever seen chattel mortgage records?  They have them.)

We know not everyone can attend K.E.E.P.’s one-day Walking Tour events.  So… we decided to put the tour into a new format and try taking it on the road to share with more people.  Our “Tour on Tour” participants have hailed from Sarah Daft, Parklane, St. Joseph’s Villa, Chateau Brickyard and Brookdale.  It’s been fun!

StJoesVillaEvery time we do a presentation or a ride-along, we hear questions and comments that either make us chuckle, teach us something, or have us doing more research to find the answers to improve our tour.   Speaking of which– for those that missed it last October (and those curious about how the tour has changed)

Please Join Us!
