Meet the Team of 2016, summer students from left to right: Marissa Strukoff, Kristina Kapitza, Emma Chapman and Anton Strukoff.  They delighted the visitors and worked diligently on many projects from May to August including Marissa’s revamping of the outdoor patio with colourful painting, Kristina’s archival map inventory project, Emma’s detailed digital collection management database for Bob’s Tool Room  and  Anton firing up the outdoor brick oven  each Thursday in preparation for the many bread loaves baked by volunteers Irene Perepolkin and Doreen Sorensen.
