rePURPOSING Things: Family Documents

Other than using your own home to store them, what can you do with  photos, documents and certificates passed down from generations?

One family inherited lovely full-color, framed 1917 graduation certificates from a Sabbath School in Pennsylvania. They had hung in the matriarch’s home but when she died none of her family wanted to hang them in their homes. But they were beautifully framed and seemed historical. It would be a shame to toss them.

With just a short search on the web for the church - which had undergone a name change - and a quick call to the church office I made arrangement to donate them to hang in their church library.

The church was very appreciative to be able to display a part of their history and sent this photo from the Sunday they announced the donation.
