Volunteer work can get very tedious, but it is really worth the effort.

I have enjoyed every minute of my volunteer efforts at this Museum. I never expected it to be this interesting. It was however very disorganized and it still lacks continuity. I've never been afraid of challenges
and this has been definitely a big challenge and the most satisfying too. I became a volunteer 3 years ago, and it has been a continuous inspiration, because of the sheer necessity of organization and goals when I first became involved: there were so many boxes, everywhere, filled with historical photographs, records, artifacts, garbage, and what not. We have probably thrown out 85% of garbage and organized the vital artifacts now.

We are all volunteers here and give it our best. We are still finding treasures among the boxes. I can say that I have learned a tremendous amount about the history of World War II, but most especially about the men and women that experienced it. Many of the members are World War II veterans, and they are getting older, so it is vital that we record their experiences. We have started a Veteran's Stories Project. I'm always excited to meet and learn from every volunteer that brings in their own experience. There are many opportunities for growth, and the volunteer Directors are always welcoming new ideas. There are also several Luncheons and Events throughout the year, that we can organize for Fundraising.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire the basic paid staff. This Museum is currently run by an all volunteer staff. There is little money. There is much opportunity and interest. Hire a Curator, a Director and an Office Manager and keep the volunteer docents for tours!
