July 27, 2017 by  

While family photos can be a good way of preserving memories, it can sometimes be a chore to keep them, and other important items, all organized and well displayed, and a Morton Grove workshop will share some tips that can help to keep their photos looking great.

The “Pitch This, Preserve That” session, which can help those who take part find their inner organizer, will help people learn how to decide what they should keep, what they can dispose of and also how to properly store and protect their important documents, photos and more. Along with this, instruction will be given in basic preservation techniques that will help to make sure the items being stored will last well into the future with fading or being damaged.

The session has been scheduled to run for one hour, and it is open to any adult who is interested. Those who plan on taking part are asked to register their interest beforehand, as this will assist the organizers in planning for the event. Local printing services will be able to supply handbooks and other materials that can be distributed during an event like this.

The Pitch This, Preserve That workshop will be held in the Baxter Room of the Morton Grove Public Library. It has been scheduled for August 3rd, and anyone who would like to register can do so on the library’s website.

Morton Grove residents who are looking for a new furry friend, or who just wish to lend a helping hand to some cats and kittens who are waiting for their forever homes, may wish to mark their calendars for an upcoming fundraiser.

Wright-Way Rescue will be hosting a “kitten shower”, and it has issued an invitation to the community to attend. Members of the public can come to the shelter and meet the nearly 50 kittens that are waiting to be adopted. While they visit and play with the kittens, they can also learn more about the adult cats also in search of a human companion of their own.

The shelter reminds those who plan on vising the shelter on Kitten Shower day that it will be grateful for monetary donation or the contribution of gifts in kind, such as wet canned cat food, paper towels, kitten milk replacement, and other items that it can use to care for its charges. Donations of these types of goods can be made throughout the month of June. The organizers of a function such as this can use poster printing to create materials to promote the event across the community.

The Wright-Way Rescue North Shore Humane Center’s Kitten Shower has been planned for June 3 at its location at 5915 Lincoln Avenue in Morton Grove. Additional details can be found on its website.
