Alameda Museum receives Rotary Club Grant
On Thursday, December 17, we received a grant from the Rotary Club of Alameda, for our digitization project.
In a zoom-meeting with Rotary Club dignitaries and representatives of other organizations that were awarded, a short demo was shown of the application holding the digital version of our card catalog.
In the short demo two photos from the collection were shown, one of a ‘Scotch’ party of the Rotary Club in 1921, one year after the founding of the Club, and one from 1922, of the planting of the ‘Rotary Tree’ in -formerly called- Jackson Park.
Last year, the Rotary Club awarded the Alameda Museum with a grant to start on this project. This year’s Rotary Club grant will go towards another year’s subscription of the software, so we can complete the project: add the location and photos of each of the estimated 20,000 to 25,000 objects in our collection.
Thank you to the Rotary Club for including us in this year’s grants!
