It’s with great delight and pride that we congratulate Joan Johnston who was named Volunteer of the Year by the Ontario Association of Art Galleries. Joan, a lifelong volunteer who worked in the Textile Museum of Canada’s H.N. Pullar Library for 15 years, said “volunteering is like chocolate for the soul. We do it because we just can’t help it.”
