We had a great evening at the annual Volunteer Appreciation Party on Sunday, April 5, at the Museum. Fifty-two people attended and enjoyed a wonderful buffet dinner and entertainment by local musician Greg Howard on the Chapman Stick. The Museum Board contributed a delicious cake for dessert.
Attendees went home with lots of goodies – door prizes, contest prizes, and thank you gifts. We also honored ten volunteers who contributed over 100 hours in 2008. They are: Holly Connell, Susan Demas, Lionel Fernandez, Judy Goetz, Carol Hendrix, Priscilla Lepsch, Kay Moore, Jacquie Pickering, Jocelyn Saunders, and Runa Zaman. Every year volunteers donate about 5000 hours to the Museum – we couldn’t do what we do without their dedication, hard work, and support!
