Warwick seeks old photos for 2014 calendar

Do you have a photo that reflects the people, places, nature, and events of Warwick from long ago? If so, the city would like to hear from you.

Mayor Scott Avedisian said there's a "retro" theme planned for the 2014 recycling calendar, and residents with photos from the 1970s and earlier are invited to submit them for consideration. Each month will feature a different photo, so only 12 pictures will be selected.

Those with hard copies of photos are asked to submit a print, which will be scanned. Or, photos may be burned onto a CD or disc in jpeg, tiff or epf format.

Photos may be emailed to: (please note that the subject line should state: calendar photo submission) or may be dropped off at or mailed to: Department of Public Works, attn: Christopher Beneduce, 925 Sandy Lane, Warwick, RI 02889, during normal business hours.

The deadline to submit photos is September 15.

Each submission should include a brief description, the name of the photographer, if known (and the person submitting the photo, if they are different), and location of the scene.

Names of those whose photos are selected will be included in the calendar.
