I volunteer at the Wolf Creek Heritage Museum once or twice a week.

Enjoy working there, as it a clean well organized museum. The other volunteers are a charm to work with.

My job is to index all of our obituaries that we have on file by town and states. There are approximately 10 volumns now and continue to grow.

The grounds are so pretty in the spring and summer, as the flower beds are full of bloom with all different kinds and the trees are growing so there will be more shade to the building.

There is a reception once a month for the honored artist of the month, so cookies, punch and coffee are brought by the volunteers. A great museum.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

All of the work is done by everyone. The first of this month was spent hanging the art work of the county school children on display for 2 months. They just published a Volumn 2 book for Lipscomb County, and everyone worked on it. A very informing book.

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

I would complete the paper work on each item, before I started on another one.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

For the time you spent, how much of an impact did you feel your work or activity had?

A lot

Did the organization use your time wisely?

Very Well

Would you recommend this group to a friend?

Definitely

What one change could this group make that would improve your volunteer experience?

Placing all of the obituaries in alphabetic order.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes. You meet new people that come to visit the museum and there are times you help them look up information on their ancesters.

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I love to work at the museum, as you know you are helping preserve the history of our county.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?

2011

my husband and I retired to Lipscomb County after 30 + years of medical and nursing careers in large urban cities. The serenity that Lipscomb offered was just what we needed to rejuvenate. It wasn't too long before we discovered the museum and their activities with the county historical commission. Annual heritage observances and monthly reception or programs along with regular exhibits are eagerly anticipated. The museum and commission recently published the second volume of the county history book to add to the library of six publications published by the museum .
the museum serves as the cultural center of the county with historical and artistic exhibits year around.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the friendships of county residents, opportunity to represent the organization at state and national meetings, exploring the history of the county. meeting artists and learning about art.

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

only expand their reach and programs.
