Start a keepsake album; learn how to preserve photos

Memoranza workshop planned for April 7

The desire to preserve memories spans language, geographical and cultural barriers.

Recognizing the worldwide importance of memory preservation, Melissa Hardin will join more than 90,000 Creative Memories Consultants on April 7 to celebrate Memoranza, an annual event bringing together people from around the world to share memories and to complete keepsake albums.

Join Hardin during her hands-on Memoranza Workshop from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, April 7, at Bingen Assembly of God.

Hardin will provide instruction on safe and creative photo preservation and will assist participants in starting keepsake albums.

The fee is $10 per person for the 6 hour event.

Celebrated as National Scrapbook Day for the past 10 years, Memoranza has evolved from a local celebration of scrapbooking into an annual, worldwide event emphasizing the importance of documenting and preserving family photos and stories in safe, meaningful keepsake albums.

"Memoranza is an international representation of our mission to preserve the past, enrich the present and inspire hope for the future," says Susan Iida-Pederson, vice president for corporate relations. "It will continue to grow and inspire story-sharing and album-making all over the world."
