Angels Celebrate

The Cannifton Heritage Centre has been very busy in 2010 with often a dozen or more volunteers attending on Monday afternoons and many people coming in at other times to work on research projects and/or on cataloguing and preserving the Society's collections.

On Monday, the regular afternoon workshop took a different twist. Instead of meeting at the Heritage Centre, the "Archive Angels" (with partners, the Society's Board of Directors and other Society volunteers) came together to celebrate the year's work at the home of Lois Foster (left).

The afternoon started with an overview by Sharon White of the accomplishments in 2010 and the projects being contemplated for 2011 followed by an presentation on digitisation by Donna Fano (right).

But thanks to Lois, Sharon and others it wasn't all talk and work, an impressive collection of edible offerings was available for sampling (and re-sampling).
