Do your family photos now have mold, water stains, sand, dirt, mud, ash, scratches or other unsightly flaws due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy last October? If so, you’re not alone. Fortunately, you can preserve these precious mementos by getting your photos scanned and digitally retouched at a special event at Nassau Community College on Sunday, April 7.
The event, a team effort between the NCC Art Department and CARE for Sandy (Cherished Album Restoration Effort) will be open to NCC staff, faculty, students and Nassau County residents. Each individual or family will be eligible to bring up to 50 photos to be scanned. Once they have been scanned they will be posted on the CARE for Sandy website to be “adopted” by approved retouching volunteers. Once digitally restored, the high-resolution images will be provided to the photo’s owners. The original photos will be returned after they are scanned. All guests will need to sign in on the first floor of the G Building at the NCC campus, One Education Drive in Garden City On April 7, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. NCC IDs are required. Scanning will take place in the Photo Lab/Rm GC 23 in the basement.
