The Beltrami County Historical Society’s annual Depot Day was Saturday, making for a perfect time to introduce our new blog and drop a quick note about the event.
To reach a broader audience more quickly and efficiently, starting today we will relay information, tell stories, highlight photographs and documents from our collections, and make other BCHS content available through this new blog. Some blog posts will be publicity for events and programs, while others will expand on columns from our newsletter or feature unique perspectives and stories from the BCHS director and other contributors. Expect event updates as necessary and original content every 2+ weeks.
We will try our best to link our blog to our other digital platforms, including , , and , as well as highlight our new digital initiatives in our newsletters and brochures. In other words, we will be easy to access.
Anyone interested in contributing a guest story, memory, photo, or anything to our blog should contact us.
As for Depot Day, it was a great time! Thank you to everyone who came and gave donations. We were excited to see a nice turnout, and we received good and valuable feedback. A huge thanks goes out to Andy Mack for organizing our guest speakers and activities. We will be shouting out official thank you’s to everyone else involved soon. And for those that did not make it to the depot, here are a few pictures of what you missed.
