Historical Society opts for Zoom recording
Due to ongoing health concerns, the Historical Society of Harrison County will not meet in person Oct. 27 as scheduled. Instead, a Zoom recording will be made available.
“I had the good fortune to participate in a Zoom event presented by the Carnegie Library in New Albany with Greg Sekula, Southern Indiana regional director of Indiana Landmarks, titled ‘Rescued and Restored’,” said Karen Schwartz, president of the Historical Society of Harrison County. “I thoroughly enjoyed the informative presentation, so I asked for permission to use this as the Historical Society of Harrison County’s October quarterly event. Greg Sekula enthusiastically agreed, and the Carnegie Library provided a recording of the event.
“The program is a celebration of amazing buildings that have been saved through the efforts of Indiana Landmarks and various partners,” she said. “Indiana Landmarks has also produced a new hardcover book titled ‘Rescued and Restored’.”
This recorded program can be accessed at any time by using the following link, which is also posted on the Historical Society website at www.historicalsocietyofharrisonco.org: https://us02web.zoom.us/rec/share/W-Ij10zqys0JCo1hDtPRu9TgUwdOlizhS6PI0p0JjI1na3v3GpQZV5HgcIhLLvDQ.TDhrKhLI-o2BR9Pj (access passcode is #VW?zkr0).
As this is a recording, it is not necessary to click on this link at a specific time, and attendees will not be able to interact with each other, Schwartz said.
The Historical Society of Harrison County also continues its mission to preserve, protect, promote and interpret the rich history of the county by sponsoring a variety of events through a grant from the Indiana Arts Commission and the Harrison County Community Foundation, including piano performances on the second and fourth Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 outside the historic Posey House, located at 225 N. Oak St. in Corydon with social distancing and masks required. Other upcoming historic arts experiences include an online Jamey Aebersold Jazz Concert, painting classes and loom experiences.
