BTC Volunteer of the Year Award 2017
Deborah (Deb) Sturdevant
From chaos to order.
From boxes in the basement to digital records in a museum.
From legend to an annotated short history.
Deborah (Deb) Sturdevant, the relatively new PBTC Archivist has completely modernized the PBTC archival records.
She requested all volunteers to look in their storage areas and turn over the records of the club. This included publications of the Rattler, personal books from Ross McClean, minutes and correspondence. She read them, purged the duplicates and catalogued what she had.
Deb arranged for the club to donate much of the archives to the Bruce County Museum where she arrange a Deed of Gift agreement that provides the BTC with some free access.
The Club now has Google drive from which we may view an inventory or all records in the Archives (142 pages) A two page summary and an indication of which records are currently at the Museum and which are available digitally.
In addition Deb has created a Historical Summary. This is a walk through time from the origination of the three Peninsula Clubs, the merger, its hiatus and resurrection.
It is wonderful resource for members and a great project that will be used to support the PBTC 50th anniversary in 2017.
Deborah Sturdevant was awarded the 2017 Volunteer of the Year Award for the BTC at this year’s annual meeting.
