AAO East-Est participated in Heritage Day Celebrations

Hundreds of people attended the Heritage Day celebrations at Ottawa City Hall on Tuesday 21 February 2012.  This annual event is a unique opportunity to raise public awareness and interest in the activities and purposes of organizations dedicated to the preservation of heritage.  Among the participants were representatives of museums, historical societies, archives and preservation institutes.  And of course, the Archives Association of Ontario Eastern Chapter was there to represent its member archives and archival professionals. 

Margaret Dixon (President) wears a period
costume inspired by archival sources.

Brian Beaven (Past President) proudly
 wears the kilt of his Scottish ancestors. 
Theresa Sorel (Treasurer) has a bit of fun as she
greets the crowd in period dress.
