I'm not usually political, but this is something I feel strongly about. The preservation program, Save America's Treasures, was cut from next year's proposed federal budget. The program provides matching grants to preservation projects. Please watch the video. There's a link at the end if you would like more information. As always, for your voice to be heard in our government, you need to contact your congressmen.
