Archbold, OH – Do you have boxes filled with photographs, family heirlooms stored in the attic, wonderful stories shared by your grandparents or family records you aren’t sure how to preserve? If so, make plans to attend the Preserving Our Memories event on Saturday, September 13 at Sauder Village.
“Preserving artifacts and sharing stories from the past is an important part of our mission at Sauder Village,” shared Kim Krieger, PR/Media Relations Specialist at Sauder Village. “From genealogy, scrapbooking and oral history to heirloom preservation and family journaling – during this special event guests will have an opportunity to gather the information and resources they need to start preserving their own family memories at home!”
At the Preserving our Memories event guests will have plenty of opportunity for education and inspiration as demonstrations will take place throughout the day in the Museum Building.
