CHERYL LINK - OFFICE MANAGER

cheryl@discoverfossils.com

Cheryl brings a lot of experience to her job here at the museum. Cheryl spent the last portion of her life managing the Morden Chamber of Commerce and working in administration for the Corn and Apple festival. However, in her past, she was a part of the board for the CFDC. The board that she as a part of was actually the group that changed the name of the museum from "The Morden and District Museum" to "The Canadian Fossil Discovery Center".  She has a lot of memories of what the museum was like many years ago and is excited to be working here in administration to continue making improvements. When she's not working at the museum Cheryl enjoys dancing, curling, golfing, gardening, and playing cribbage.
