The AAO Needs Your SUPPORT…
Donate items to this year’s Silent Auction!

May 29th - 30th the 2014 AAO Conference will be hosted by Durham Chapter in Oshawa, Ontario

We are looking for members to donate items such as (but not limited to): Artwork – Archival supplies – Baked goods – Books (related to the profession) – Hand crafted pieces (i.e. jewelry, knitted wares) Pottery – Gift Baskets (i.e. chocolate, wine, beer)

Funds raised from this auction will go to the AAO Shirley Spragge Education Fund, to encourage the continuing education of archivists in Ontario. Your donations are greatly appreciated. A donation to the silent auction would not only support this fund, but would honour the memory of a respected colleague. All items donated will receive a tax receipt.

Shirley Spragge was an enthusiastic, dedicated archivist, well known in the archival community in Ontario and across the county. While she was most closely associated with Queen's University, she was involved in many other endeavours, including archival associations, historical groups, church archives, and university faculty work. In 1995, Shirley died from complications associated with lupus.
