The East Bloomfield Historical Society has stumbled across something really exciting; a military commission signed by Abraham Lincoln! Unfortunately, sharing important local artifacts like this can be a huge challenge for the Society, as both natural and artificial light can damage the objects on display without the proper equipment to protect it.
The “Liberating Honest Abe” campaign is underway, to help the Society raise funds for the purchase a special UV-filtering archival case that will protect this delicate artifact, and allow the Society to share other delicate items from the archives moving forward.
We would greatly appreciate your time in helping to spread the word! (Donors at $50+ will be invited to a special “First Look” event to view the commission, but any amount makes a difference!). Anyone interested in supporting the campaign can simply visit the https://fundly.com/let-s-bring-lincoln-to-the-uv-filtered-light and click donate.
Thank you in advance for your help!

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
The new "Finger Lakes" walk of fame in Geneva honors 19 people, 14 of whom have ties primarily to Rochester, which is not in the Finger Lakes. Which of these real Finger Lakes people do you think is most deserving?
