Changing of the Guard at the Arnprior and McNab/Braeside Archives

It was a surprise to learn at Saturday's Voices from the Dust event that Laurie Dougherty has retired from the Archivist position at the Arnprior and McNab/Braeside Archives as of the end of May. I found Laurie to be most helpful on the occasions I sought her advice. She was a progressive influence. I wish her well.

Her replacement is Emma Carey, a graduate of McGill University who subsequently studied and worked in Scotland and Toronto. Naturally it will take some while for her to find her feet. All the best Emma.

Thank you John for your kind remarks and good wishes. I leave the AMBA with many special memories after 20 years (2 as volunteer and 18 as archivist)and in Emma Carey`s very capable hands.
