Mark your calendars for May 9th-17th, 1998 as the Colorado
Historical Society invites interested historic preservation

local historic and archaeological organizations in Colorado.
Last year over 60 events were held throughout the state and
ranged from a double decker bus tour to lectures on the
archaeology of a particular region or topic.

For 1998, grants of up to $200 will be made available to 
organizations needing financial assistance to hold an event.
The grant money can be used to rent space, advertisements,
purchase materials, etc. Early planning for the event is
strongly encouraged. All organizations interested in obtaining
grant money should complete an application form which can be
obtained from the Office of Archaeology and Historic Preservation,
(303)866-3395. or it can be obtained from the internet on the
