They made a great sacrifice for us. But shamefully, we have forgotten some of them.

"Without preservation of local snapshots, stories, events, art, sports, buildings, our memories, our enjoyments, and our actions along with the things we made and used, the very neighborhood where we lived will soon forget who we were, what we did,
what we believed in, and what our cultural was but worst of all, if we ever existed."

NeyChip's Priority of Preservation
Who did what, when and why.
Collect and post old photographs.
List past churches, schools, ............businesses, and more.
