The Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum in Buffalo and the Trail End State Historic Site in Sheridan are teaming to bring classes to both communities to teach people how to protect their family heirlooms for future generations.
Sylvia Bruner, Assistant Director and Registrar at the Jim Gatchell Museum, said the classes will focus on photos, but also many other types of family keepsakes.
The classes will be offered Wednesday, April 25th at 9am at the Jim Gatchell Memorial Museum and at 6pm at the Sheridan County/Fulmer Public Library, presented by the Trail End State Historic Site. Both are open to the public and free of charge.
The classes are being offered in celebration of The American Library Association's Preservation Week, along with many other similar events all over the country.
Bruner said if anyone has a particular item such as an old photo stuck to glass from its frame, to bring them to the class and get a recommendation of how to best to save the item. They will be learning experiences for everyone attending.
