New organization: 20- and 30- somethings promoting Memphis Heritage

While you’re waiting on the Halloween photo album (and I’m waiting for the photos to upload), here’s something to put on the calendar:

Tomorrow – Thursday, November 2 – will be the kickoff for a new group called Young Heritage, 20- and 30- somethings interested in promoting and preserving Memphis’ architectural heritage. In addition to meets-and-greets, the group will sponsor events like 5K runs past historical buildings in the city. Kickoff party will be at Howard Hall at 2282 Madison at 7 pm tomorrow night. Stop by for music and refreshments and a showing of the “Then and Now” photo exhibit, showing photos of famous landmarks by photographer Don Newman, paired with current photos of the landmarks by Gary Walpole to create a before-and-after feel.

See this article from the Memphis Daily News for more info. Thanks to regular blog reader More Cowbell for letting me know about this. Most likely I’ll be there.
