What's on the docket
The Archives could really use
your help! We rely upon volunteers to keep the building open for
tourists and researchers for April/May and September/October. If you have volunteered at
the Archives in the past, please consider volunteering again during
April and May...we could sure use your help! Contact Kate to choose a
date to help. If you think you might like to volunteer please call or email Kate to set up some training...we'd love to have you join us.
you seen the new Spring newsletter yet? You really should take a few
minutes and read it through. Our newsletter team has pulled
together some great interviews (Bruce Jackson on why the Archives serves
all of Charlotte county,
Donna Muir on researching her husband's family's history), a profile on
one of the historic houses in our summer Heritage Homes Tour and some
very interesting tidbits of information (such as what the Archives has
planned for Canada Day...hint...it's going to be a blast). Do
take a few extra minutes to follow the links in Bruce's article "From a
director's chair"...you'll learn a great deal about our County and its
Archives. Pour yourself a cuppa and settle in for a great read!
Spring hours are
starting at the Archives! Our team of volunteers will be keeping the
Archives open from April 15 until the end of May, Tuesday to Friday, 1:00 to 4:00. Drop in and pay us a visit!
the date! The Charlotte County Archives will be hosting our first
Heritage House Tour this summer. On August 9th tour six historically
significant homes and finish off with refreshments at the Anglican Church Hall.
All this for only $20! What a great way to spend a St. Andrews afternoon, and
at the same time help the Archives raise some operating funds. Tickets are limited to 180 and are on sale now! They'll go quickly so grab yours while you can. All the information you is right here.
Your Charlotte County Archives would like to tell you about our new strategy for keeping you informed!
is a bi-weekly series of emails highlighting the resources and services
of the Archives. The emails will be extremely short, like the one
below, but we hope you will follow the link to the full article on our
web site to find out more about the topics which interest you. If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in receiving our Taproot emails, please use the "subscribe
to Taproot" button below to start receiving your own emails.
