--March 18, 2011.

The Aylmer Heritage Association recently announced that it has hired two new employees to help manage its collections.

larger_aylmer.11.jpgFollowing the departure of administrator Carole Lynch after eighteen months of "dedicated service" (President Mary Duggan's words), the association decided to hire two new staffers to take up various duties. Christine Larmour has been hired as office manager, while Lucie Joyale is the new archival assistant. Both positions are part-time.

During a recent visit by QAHN to the Association's home in the Old Methodist Chapel in Aylmer, long-time archivist (and leading light of the association) Enid Page introduced us to Joyale, who was busy entering data into the archives computer.

"We've gotten to the point in our development where we really do need some paid help, at least part-time," Page explained. "And it's wonderful!"

Page has been the Aylmer Heritage Association's archivist for many years, and continues in that position still. She is also a past president of the association and a noted heritage activist in this part of the Outaouais. 2010 marked the 35th anniversary of the association.

The Aylmer Heritage Association is open Tuesdays and Thursdays, from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, click here.
