Sports Photo Scan-a-thon

Northern Lehigh Future Focus will publish a sports photo book later this year on Slatington/Northern Lehigh High School and select community sports teams from 1900 to the present.

As part of that effort, Future Focus has teamed up with the Slatington Library to give residents who do not want to lend their photos out, an opportunity to have them scanned onto a computer and returned immediately.

Two scan-a-thon sessions have been scheduled; the first is Saturday, May 21 from 9 a.m. to noon, and the second is on Monday, May 23, from 4-7 p.m.

The scanning is free, and Future Focus only asks that you bring along any information about the picture and provide any names you can of those appearing in the photos.

High school and community sports pictures, team or individual from 1900 up through the present are being sought, along with community sports photos from years ago. Also of interest is any old ticket stubs, programs, and so on, from high school athletic events.

For more information, contact Marilyn at (610) 767-5817, or Robert at (610) 767-7626.
