Convert Your PERSONAL Videos to DVDs and Support the Archives

Charlestown Archives is providing a new service for a donation to the Archives. Archives resident volunteers Marty Tewksbury and Bob Plummer will convert your personal VHS tapes to DVDs in return for a monetary contribution to the Archives.

Conversion of one VHS tape to one DVD:
30 minutes maximum – $10 contribution to the Charlestown Archives
31 minutes – 2 hours maximum – $15 contribution to the Charlestown Archives

This does NOT include conversion of commercially produced VHS tapes.
The video and audio quality of the VHS determines the quality of the resulting DVD.

For more information and an appointment to drop off your VHS for conversion to a DVD, please call or email Marty Tewksbury. Contact information can be found in the Resident Directory.

Staying Fit at Charlestown is Easy Peasy

Don’t forget to take a look at the Archives Display Cabinet as you head over the bridge to the Auditorium or Brookside elevators. Every two months there’s a completely new display theme which includes documents and photos from the Archives.  The current Archives display, Staying Fit at Charlestown Is Easy Peasy, has documents and photos of the 35-year history of our Pool and Fitness Centers and fitness classes. See photos of classes including the resident-run morning exercise class which began 35 years ago. This display demonstrates the many fun and effective ways available to residents to stay fit at Charlestown.

Check out the new Charlestown Fitness Song.  Write your own verse for the song and email or bring it to the Archives, across from the pharmacy on Main Street in Fountain Hill [Bldg. 1].

Warning: Daily exercise and healthy eating leads to increased awesomeness!!
