Pam Cain, former curator of the Fort Frances Museum and current executive director of the Community Art and Heritage Education Project, worked on creating a support in order to display and preserve an old family Bible belonging to Lyle and Betty Martin during the “Preserving Your Family Heirlooms” workshop at the museum last night. Eight people took part in the hands-on workshop, learning to preserve their own family treasures they had brought, including old photographs, letters, a marriage certificate, and handmade lace.
