The program is about Collections and will be presented by Robert Storozuk, President of the Milwaukee Road Historical Association.

What to do with your collections and who to leave them to so history does not get lost. Bob will be teaching us how to approach others concerning collections they may have, and how to convince them to leave to the right person or organization in their will so the objects don’t wind up in the garbage. This will be a very informative program. Be sure to invite someone that works on your collections to this program.
