It takes a lot of volunteers to keep everything going at Surface Creek Valley Historical Society's Pioneer Town in Cedaredge.
Board members meet year-round to handle all issues pertaining to the society and the museum.
They chair special events along with other responsibilities. The Tuesday Morning crew is made up of a talented group of men who keep everything in good repair. There are 13 half-day shifts for volunteers to cover each week at the Welcome Center. The chapel committee is responsible for lining up and hosting concerts. A committee is working toward upgrading and recording archival items.
Volunteers thoroughly clean each building prior to the season's opening each spring. All of the special events require additional "hands" for success. The list goes on and on with group tour guides, doll house and Indian museum hosts, landscaping work, "smithy" demonstrations in the blacksmith shop, and many other responsibilities handled by willing volunteers throughout the museum.
An annual event, the recognition dinner, was held the evening of October 9 where volunteers were recognized by Surface Creek Valley Historical Society as a way of saying "thank you" to all who gave of their time and talents this past year.
Roast beef was at the top of the menu with sides and desserts prepared by Les and Dorothy Mergelman. Les also served as Master of Ceremonies.
Volunteers are the core of the museum. Volunteers make the society and the museum a success!blog comments powered by Disqus
