Share a historic item or photo during Retro Roundtable events

Press Staff Writer

        Do you have a family heirloom, letter, photo, toy or other artifact that is special to you?
        Bring it to Retro Roundtable sessions and share its story in April at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums.
        The first Retro Roundtable session will focus on artifacts and take place in person on Saturday, April 3, in the HPLM auditorium. Face coverings are required, and household groups are asked to keep at least 6 feet of physical distance between other groups.
        The second event, which will take place virtually on Saturday, April 10, will focus on photographs. Presenters can participate in one or both sessions.
        Both sessions will run from 9:30-11 a.m. Participation is free.
        Julie Mayle, curator of manuscripts, will lead the artifacts session, and Gil Gonzalez, head of photographic resources, will lead the photo session. They will begin programs by sharing something from Hayes Presidential’s collections.
        Each session is limited to 10 presenters, who must pre-register by contacting Mayle at 419-332-2081, ext. 239, or Hayes Presidential will not be able to accommodate walk-in presenters.
        Observers are also welcome to attend but also must pre-register with Mayle. All presenters and observers for the artifact session must pre-register by Thursday, April 1, and for the photo session by Thursday, April 8.
        Presenters for the photo session are asked to provide a digital image of the photograph that they would like to share. If that is not possible, please contact Mayle to arrange having the photo scanned at Hayes Presidential. The image will be shown on-screen during each presenter’s designated time slot.
        A confirmation email with login information will be sent to registered presenters and observers before the program.
        HPLM is located at Spiegel Grove at the corner of Hayes and Buckland avenues. For information, call 419-332-2081, visit or follow on social media.
