An appeal by the late Charles E
"This site has been a
labor of love and I've enjoyed every moment that I've
spent building it. Probably the biggest pleasure I've
received has, becoming re-acquainted with many old friends
and acquainted with many new friends with roots in Auburn
and Logan County.
At Yahoo-Geocities, the host of this site, 15 megabytes of
disk space is offered for free if you allow advertising on
the site, and that's how we started. In less than six
months we passed the 15 megabyte mark and it started
costing and, by then, I was so caught up in the activity
and the positive reactions I was getting on this project,
I paid no thought to the minor cost and allowed them to
charge my debit card. Early in 2002 we passed the 25
megabyte mark and the price went up again and it's now
costing $11.95 a month.
Those wanting to contribute to the maintenance of this
site should mail a check payable to Auburn Memories"
That was Then - back in 2002-2003
Scroll Forward to 2009-2010
Those of you who follow Auburn Memories will note that in
the fall of 2009 the website closed down for a lack of
support. Please don't let this happen again - a
combination or many small contributions will make all the
difference in keeping it alive. At that time Auburn Memories carried pictures of
people and places only. I promised Charles Wood, at his
request, several months before he passed away, that I
would spare no effort in keeping this site up and running
as long as I was able to. Today we have expanded this by
combining two websites;
www.auburnkymemories.com to bring, not only pictures,
but a combination of history and pictures. Furthermore, we
have started to include the local cemeteries (including
monument pictures) and the Auburn High School yearbooks.
This is a continual 'work in progress' that will not only
take time, but oodles of megabytes.
are very grateful to those who have contributed including
one of the Auburn High School Classes. Their contribution
will help towards
defraying some of the costs of maintaining this site.
