Board of Directors Announcement

At the August 25, 2022 Board Meeting, the Board of Directors accepted the resignation of Dave Zavitz as Vice Chair of the Middlesex Centre Archives. Dave has served in that position since 2019. He will continue on in his role as a Director and as a volunteer.  Dave wears his dedication to MCA on his sleeve so everyone can see. He works tirelessly for its benefit and is a very valued member of the organisation. If there is a task to be done, he is there.  He is always thinking ahead and what is best for the Archives.

Thank you Dave for all your work as Vice Chair. It is great working with you. You are a valued part of the team.

At the same Board Meeting, the Board appointed Glenn Scarborough as Vice Chair. Glenn is another dedicated member and director of MCA. He puts MCA’s best interests foremost. We do look forward to working with Glenn as Vice Chair. 

Thank you to both Glenn and Dave. 


Dedication of the Dr. Ken Veldhuis Reading Room

On Canada Day 2022, Middlesex Centre Archives held the dedication of the Dr. Ken Veldhuis Reading Room. Ken, a dedicated historian, was instrumental in founding the Middlesex Centre Archives in 2013 and worked tirelessly as a volunteer until his death on February 10, 2020. Present for the dedication were Diane, Caroline and Jill-Ann Veldhuis. Ken’s memory will always fondly live-on at the Middlesex Centre Archives.

Pictured are Carol Small, Chair MCA, Diane, Jill-Anne and Caroline Veldhuis. Also pictured are the dedication photo and plaque to honour Ken.



Have you been cleaning and sorting your files? Do you have old photos, books, documents, organisations’ secretary/treasurer books, posters, letters, books, family histories etc. from Middlesex Centre? Before you throw them in the recycling bin or dumpster, consider donating them to the Middlesex Centre Archives. We will save those precious articles for you and future generations to study, research and learn about our past. We hope to re-open on September 9th or when it is deemed safe to do so. We will let you know!

Call to Action

We are experiencing history. This has never happened in our lifetime. We do hope you are keeping records because in 50 to 100 years, our descendants will be researching in archives to discover how their ancestors (that’s you) survived Covid-19. Once Middlesex Centre Archives is open to the public, we would love copies of those memoirs – diaries, photos and/or videos.
