Collecting and preserving the artifacts that tell the story of the Valdres Samband

Preservation Kudos to Aaron Hanson

By Russ Elmore aka Shredder Troll

December 20, 2016

 

Mange Tusen Takk to Aaron Hanson for calling the Shredder Troll to see if I wanted his inventory of items from when he was the editor and photographer for the Budstikken to keep in Preservation.  He had Budstikkens going back to 1985, some VCR Video of various events, tapes of interviews with older Officers of the Valdres Samband and a LARGE number of pictures from various Stevner and other events.

Aaron was moving to a western state from the Minneapolis area with his family for an exciting new career before December 1, 2016.   When I opened the first shoe box of pictures I found that every picture had a description with names and dates penciled on the back; How Fantastic!!

Aaron has been doing what I have been asking every other member to do and that is label your pictures.  Description of where and event, people’s names and dates at the very least!  Just remember before trashing call The Shredder Troll at 715-766-2222 or e-mail someone on the Board of the Valdres Samband.  Let the Shredder Troll decide what’s important to keep for the preservation of The Valdres Samband!
