Sharon White and Donna Fano presented a
selection of “Stories from the Archives”
Compliments are great after hard work, so when Rachel Henry of Chartwell Bayview Retirement Residence told us we were awesome, we felt good.
Being sandwiched between Jeanette Arsenault and the Fiddleheads can be a tough act, but the presentation of some of the stories from the archives, including ones written by Bill Kennedy, Lois Foster, Diane Sule, Al Cleary and Donna Fano held its own to a standing-room-only audience in the (small) theatre at the residence.

The Community Archives / Historical Society exhibits, featuring the Farley Mowat poster set plus sixteen other panels, were also popular.
A steady stream of visitors throughout the three-hour event spent considerable time matching descriptions with the panels on display.
More pictures from the event can be seen in this album.
