Volunteer Opportunities

What do volunteers do?

The museum honors a Volunteer of the year annually. Those chosen have taken initiative to go above and beyond to serve the museum through service; selecting projects which need to be done and completing them on their own, contributing their unique talents, or putting in extra hours to complete projects which were needed. To show our appreciaton the recipients are given a gift certificate and a certificate of appreciation. Every volunteer is important and their time and talents are essential to the operation of the museum.
