Preserving History

Image may contain: indoorBeing a member of the DAR, preserving history is a great past time.  Once a week I head to town to volunteer giving tours at our local museum.  It's a lovely place to hang out and meet new people.  In between patrons, I put on my apron and dust away cobwebs, mop the floor and spritz clean the glass display cases.  It's rewarding and sorta fun studying about the town's founding fathers/mothers and looking at all of the gadgets.  Many museums are struggling to stay open - I encourage you to support and take an interest in your area's history.
