Earlier this year, the Archives’ volunteer and Vice President Gail Prette, celebrated a special birthday milestone! As a result of the ongoing pandemic, she was forced to cancel her birthday plans and find a new way to mark the occasion. Gail turned to social media, where she asked her friends and family to make a donation to the Archives in lieu of attending a party. Over the next several months, donations were made on Facebook (through Giving Fund Canada) in Gail’s name. The Archives recently received a cheque for $475 for Gail’s birthday fundraiser. Additional cash donations made in Gail’s name brought the total to a whopping $585! Gifts such as these help the Archives continue our mission of gathering, preserving, and sharing the historical records of the South Peace. We are incredibly thankful for these generous donations, and to Gail Prette for her continued support of our organization.
Happy Birthday, Gail!
