Ruth Masters’ “Lest We Forget” handmade book dedicated to those of the Comox Valley who lost their lives in World Wars I and II has been off exhibit and out of the building for a much-needed spruce up and repair.

Vancouver Island Art Conservation, a local business specializing in the conservation, repair, and housing of works of art on paper and archival documents, is nearing completion on restoration work to the original album as well as creating a new hands-on copy for the public.
