The Orem, Utah Camp of the Daughters of Utah Pioneers announces that at their annual meeting on October 20, 2012, Scott M. Haskins, author of How To Save Your Stuff From A Disaster and professional art conservator will be speaking. He will be giving us tips and how-to instructions for collection care at home and for DUP items.

The meeting will be held, Monday, October 22, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. at the LDS Church–670 E 800 N, in Orem. For more information call Lynne Lynn at 801 224 2106

All DUP camps in the Utah Valley and Salt Lake Valley are invited to attend. Mr. Haskins spoke at the DUP National Annual Director’s meeting in May and was such a big hit, that we are pleased to announce he has accepted to speak to our local group.

His presentation includes a review of the very interesting restoration and conservation work he has done on some of DUP’s most valuable paintings since he began working with our collection since 1980.
