At our Annual General Meeting on Saturday, February 16, 2013, we celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Kingston Branch OGS.
Once the AGM business was over, member Sharon Cadieux was presented with an honorary life membership in Kingston Branch. The citation reads as follows:
Whereas Sharon Cadieux joined Kingston Branch Ontario Genealogical Society in 1974, mere months after the formation of the branch, and has maintained continuous membership since then;
And Whereas Sharon Cadieux became a member of the Branch Executive / Branch Council shortly after joining, serving in several capacities, including Branch Vice-Chair, Chair and Past Chair, four terms as Recording Secretary and four terms, totaling over ten years, as Chair of the Library Committee;
And Whereas in her capacity as Chair of the Library Committee, Sharon Cadieux did most of the work to secure the grant from the Community Foundation for the library shelving on the east wall of our Branch Library at 130 Johnson Street;

And Whereas Sharon Cadieux is always willing to share her vast genealogical knowledge and personal library with others;
