Do you wonder about how to store your “stuff”? Are you confused by the variety of storage containers on the market? Do you know how to prepare for disasters and what to do if one happens? And what about digital stuff? Is your data secure and in a form you and your children will be able to access in the future?

Document StorageIf you are plagued by these questions, or haven’t yet given them a thought, you should come to the next HRGS meeting at the Highlands Ranch Library, 9292 S Ridgeline Blvd, Highlands Ranch, CO 80129 at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 5 for “Clean, Dry, Dark and Cool: Save your family treasures” presented by Shaun Boyd, the President of the Society of Rocky Mountain Archivists and a long-time Douglas County Archivist!
