Are you caring for family heirlooms or interested in antiques?  You cannot stop the eventual deterioration of such prized items, but with the right knowledge, you can slow it down.  In this course you will learn the factors that contribute to deterioration, how to create a basic preservation-minded environment, and methods for storing and handling your family treasures in a way that will   increase the chances that they will be around for future generation to enjoy. An emphasis will be placed on family papers,  scrapbooks, photographs, and textiles, though other materials will also be discussed. The final session will be held at the Historical Museum of Bay County.

Further information regarding cost and registration can be acquired by contacting the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at: (989) 964-4475 or by visiting the OLLI website.
