What's on the docket
Has summer flown by as quickly for you as it has for us? Hard to believe that fall is around the corner! September hours begin at the Archives on September 1st. That's right, we will be open on Labour Day Monday! Our 3 students leave on Friday August 29th, but Kate Akagi, one of the Archives' volunteers, will be working the entire month of September to keep the Archives open. We have several bus tours from the States coming to do research, and Culture Days are fast approaching at the end of September, so it promises to be a busy month.
Major shout out to our summer students, Emily, Oliver and Nicolas! You did a great job for us this summer.
Our hours for September are 10 - 4:30 Monday to Friday.

one of the historic houses in our summer Heritage Homes Tour and some
very interesting tidbits of information. Do

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!
