|The truth of this statement was celebrated earlier this month when six of the Historical Society's outstanding volunteers, the Archives Angels, were honoured for their contributions to the society - a combined total of 120 years of volunteer work! The annual Ontario Volunteer Service Awards banquet was held on May 2 at the Banquet Centre on Alhambra Square. Marney Black, Adele Dibben, Lois Foster, Beth Green, Diane Sule and Mary Jane Throop received awards.
This photo shows Adele Dibben, Beth Green, Lois Foster and Marney Black with Todd Smith and Dick Hughes at the awards ceremony.

The second picture, taken at the Hastings Heritage Centre shows Mary Jane Throop and Diane Sule holding their certificates with the pins. As Mary Jane and Diane were not able to attend the official ceremony, they received their pins from Society President Dick Hughes.
In addition to their regular pins each volunteer was awarded a special Jubilee pin, created in honour of Queen Elizabeth II's 60th year on the throne.
