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.
We'd like to introduce you to our 3 summer students! Emily is from St.
Stephen and is studying History at Mount Allison. She is funded through
Young Canada Works and this will be her first summer working at the
Archives. Oliver is from St. George, is studying History at St. Thomas
and is funded through NB Heritage Branch's PEP program. This will be his
first summer working with us as well. On July 2nd Nicolas will be
returning for his third summer. He is from Ottawa, but has close family
ties to St. Andrews and is
studying History at UNB Fredericton. He is funded through Canadian
Summer Jobs. So...now that you've met our team, why not drop into the
Archives and let them help you with your project? Whether it's
researching your family's history or tracking down a photo from
Charlotte County's past, this team is ready to lend a hand!
