The grant will be presented on May 29 at the Memorial Day ceremony in Cahoon Memorial Park. The Bay Village Foundation grants support projects that improve the quality of life and benefit the citizens of Bay Village.
The historical society’s historic preservation committee will use the grant money to purchase a computer system, printer, archival storage and a collection and contact management software program, PastPerfect. The application is used by more than 10,000 museums. It will allow Bay Village Historical Society volunteers to properly catalog historical information and to access online records. It will be used to preserve information about the history of Bay Village and to continue to educate the public about the city.
The computer program is phase two of the historical society’s Osborn Learning Center project. The first phase included installing new lighting, replacing ceilings, flooring and baseboards, as well as painting the second level and stairway at the center.
