Purple Hills historical materials delivered to Simcoe County Archives

Simcoe County ArchivesToday, we delivered historical materials to Simcoe County Archives and into the capable hands of Matthew Fells, Archivist, and Jenn Huddleston, Archival Technician.

In honour of our 40th year, we have brought together and organized files, records, scrapbooks, photographs, and marketing materials generated by Purple Hills activities since 1977. We wanted everyone to have a chance to look through them so we asked curator Rosemary Donegan to help us mount an exhibit in the Station on the Green. There, we shared photographs, binders, posters and other memorabilia with members and friends, as part of the 2017 Creemore Festival of the Arts.

And today, we delivered those materials to safekeeping for future generations.

Everyone can now see these materials at the Simcoe County Archives. There is a public reading room for reviewing archival materials — calling ahead is recommended.

Of particular interest:
  • pictures of people and events
  • posters, tickets, newsletters, costumes, decorations, etc.
  • old records, files, notes, other documents

Special thanks are due to Basil Guinane, Julie Pollock, Barbara Mann and Rosemary Donegan.
