The Scrapbook Preservation Society participants are all volunteers. We pay no dues nor receive money for our work. We liken our group less to a trade association and more to a community action group. Like a group of neighbors rolling up their sleeves to plant a garden and beautify the block, we are rolling up our sleeves to make our scrapbooks last, to make scrapbooking last. Listed below are the current SPS participants.
