Be included in Skokie's history: Get your picture taken Sunday for FREE

Get ready for your close-up, Skokie, and become part of Skokie's history!

The All Skokie Photo Project invites everyone with ties to Skokie, everyone who makes Skokie what it is today, to get their picture made for inclusion in the Skokie Historical Society's photography collection. 

When: Sunday, September 26, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.  (at the same time as Skokie's Farmers' Market)

Where: Skokie Heritage Museum, 8031 Floral Ave. in Downtown Skokie

Bring a friend or neighbor.  The event's Facebook page offers a clue about who else is expected.

George Pfoertner and I will be the primary shooters.

Comb your hair or not. We'll be making real pictures of real people as they want to be known. 

Participation is free, but a donation would be appreciated. 

Photos from this shoot will be posted as soon as possible on Facebook at http://tinyurl.com/WeAreSkokie. 

The All Skokie Photo Project is a year-long community photography project aiming to make pictures of everyone with ties to Skokie--everyone that lives, works, worships, studies in Skokie, ever has, or who just care about Skokie--by May 2011 for inclusion in the Skokie Historical Society's archives. 

We aim to update the world on what Skokie is about now.

 Besides getting your picture taken, you'll be asked to fill out a questionnaire so we can write a short story about you to go with your picture.

Inclusivity, creativity, bridging the gap among people of different backgrounds and promoting pride in Skokie is the focus.
