Don't Throw Out History!

Here's a slip I picked up at the OGS Region VIII meeting last Saturday from the display of the Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Heritage Museum.

We all hear of valuable historical material consigned to the dump by those more interested in clearing a house or other building than anything else. But some archives are pressed for space and can't accept additional material, nor do they have the time to sort through reams of paper to find the historically valuable material.

What efforts are in place in your area to preserve its history at risk?
