Mo WC caps off 20th anniversary with free Mill Memory Bank registration
WOONSOCKET – This holiday season, the Museum of Work & Culture’s 20th Anniversary celebration will culminate with free registration in the Mill Memory Bank, a digital registry of former mill workers.
Through New Year’s Eve, individuals may recognize the contributions of loved ones who worked in mills throughout Rhode Island by submitting profiles to the MoWC. Registration forms can be downloaded at RIHS.org and emailed, along with an accompanying photograph, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Mill Memory Bank is a component of the MoWC’s latest permanent exhibit, Mills Along the Blackstone: Locally Made, Internationally Known. The exhibit traces the history of area mills over the course of 200 years by utilizing the latest in touch technology.
This holiday season, the MoWC will also offer its 12 Days of Deals in the gift shop. Each day from December 10 through December 23, the MoWC will have special discounts to promote local holiday shopping.
