Hidden Treasures (and Some Treasures That Should Remain Hidden)

In an organization as old as the Red Cross (our chapter is a strapping 92 years old!), you find some odd things tucked away in corners. For instance, if you venture down to the closets in one of our classrooms, you will find a wealth of forgotten treasures, artifacts, and memorabilia.

Our trusty AmeriCorps members, Cassidhe and Amanda, have taken it upon themselves to sort, organize, and catalog the entire stash. So of course, I took a camera and went to document:

"This is just half of it!" says Cassidhe.
