History Exhibits
Making stories of the past relevant to the present.

The American Red Cross, established over a hundred years ago in St. Petersburg, has a history of caring and responding in disasters.  The chapter had boxes and boxes of photographs, documents and artifacts to construct the history of the Red Cross in the region.  Volunteers fabricated the exhibit and it traveled to venues in the area.
