Help tell the story of the city of Port St. Joe as its centennial arrives this summer.

The Port St. Joe Centennial Celebration Committee is seeking assistance from the community in documenting the history of modern Port St. Joe in the roll out toward the Centennial Celebration which begins in June.

Specifically, the committee is reaching out to the community for photographs that will help the story of Port St. Joe and the families and events that shaped its history.

The committee will hold a “Scan Day” from 2-5 p.m. ET on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Senior Citizens Center on Library Drive in Port St. Joe to scan photos and hear the stories behind them as the committee builds a historic archive to honor the city’s centennial.

“Here is a way to preserve the past,” said Dana Boyer, a member of the Centennial Committee. “We want to be able to document the history of this area. The photos and stories are out there. We want to document and archive them.”

Along with Tim Nelson and Clarence Monette, the committee will set up three scanning stations at the Senior Citizens Center on Feb. 23.

At each station, photographs will be scanned.
