Nicolas Gibeault is back at the Archives for his fourth summer! His knowledge of our programs and on-going work is extensive so he is a huge help to us. He will be the Summer Manager this year and will be assisted by Emily Forster who was with us last year...you may remember her doing an amazing job helping with our tours. The third member of our student team is Johnny Matheson who will be joining us on June 29th.
you seen the Spring Newsletter yet? If you have I think you'll agree
that it is brilliant...as usual! And if you haven't....well there's no time

something about the Charlotte County Museum in St. Stephen, take a sneak peek
at one of the houses on the 2015 Heritage Homes Tour on August 8th,
peruse the second installment of May Greenlaw's memories about her family, and
read “From the Director's Chair” where Ernie Depatie (our tech wizard
extraordinaire) talks about the consequences for the Archives of Microsoft
pulling the plug on support for Windows XP...a truly remarkable tale of
Charlotte County ingenuity. There's even a short vignette about a certain tree
in St. George! I wonder if you can guess which one?
Take a load off and take a look at the
Spring 2015 Newsletter.
