QFHS Heritage Centre Cleanup

A big thank you to all the volunteers who showed up to dust off and give the Quebec Family History Heritage Centre a good cleaning!
Special shout out to:
Logan Suh, Patrick Fornier, Mark McMullin, Dominic Fantini, Patrick McDevon and Owen Mercier from the
Loyola Christian Service Program Student Volunteers.
 
The young lads handled the outside landscaping work and cleaning of the very high windows!
