Springfield Hospital needs to identify photos

Springfield Hospital Center needs help identifying old photographs of the facility as part of its centennial celebration.

The photos, many from the early days of the farm at Springfield, will be in the Centennial Museum on the first floor of the Hubner Building from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday.

Barbara Kelly, Centennial Committee co-chair, said the daylong rTC session is an attempt to involve the community in the hospital's celebration.

For information about the photograph identification or other centennial activities, call 795-2100, Ext. 3218.
