Archives center hires new director
August 27, 2020
The Appelo Archives Center has announced that their new director is Annika Kay.
“I like to think of preserving history by embracing progress. Remembering and honoring those before us and keeping records of the past, while looking to the future of the archives. Walt Disney said it best: ‘We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things’, but here at the archives, we keep moving forward to protect the past. The archives will never be completed and will always continue to grow; Hopefully long after we become part of its history,” said Kay.
Kay is looking forward to carrying on the legacy of Carlton Appelo in helping to preserve the rich cultural history of the surrounding area.
They have been taking the opportunity of the downtime to refresh and introduce new features to the Appelo Archives Center, which functions as a cafe, visitors center, meeting room, museum, and local historical archive.
