Get To Know Us: Meet Linda Heron + Wendy Ounpoo

Long-time TMC Volunteers Linda Heron and Wendy Ounpoo recently created banners for the First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto. In May, the organization is hosting the Canadian Unitarian Council meeting and conference, an annual gathering of member congregations from across Canada. Linda has been a volunteer in the Museum shop since 1993, while Wendy became a TMC member 20 years ago.
