CANYON, TX (KFDA) - Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum is asking if you have a great memory at Kimbrough Memorial Stadium? If you do they are asking you to share your photos for a chance to be featured in a PPHM exhibit during Homecoming week.

"We're all about collecting and sharing stories and what better way to remember Kimbrough than by collecting the pictures. Says Interim Directer of PPHM Carol Lovelady, "We want to collect their pictures and share them with everybody to remember the good times that people have had there."

The memories can be of events at Kimbrough like band camp, football games, July 4th concerts, engagements, or anything you wish, it is open for interpretation.

If you wish to enter a photo of your memory it is asked that they were taken at the Kimbrough Memorial Stadium or can be photographs of the Kimbrough Memorial Stadium itself.

"This is just a way for everyone to remember the wonderful times they have had at Kimbrough Memorial as it moves into a transition time." Says PPHM Marketing Directer Sephanie Price, "We are looking for all kinds of memories and it is going to be a wonderful exhibit in the museum in a special gallery."

They are looking for photo's from all generations from when the stadium was built until today. They are hoping that they will have submissions from everyone of all ages.
