MUSEUM VILLAGE INC
February 27, 2011

Visiting Museum Village is my way of going back into time. Being a lover of history, I am able to enjoy the benefits of such a terrific resource in my very own community. There are many events that are wonderful to attend. Fire Fighter's Day when all the local fire departments join the Museum to proudly show off their own prize antiques. Civil War Weekend - kids and adults are withness to the Union and Confederate reenactors skirmish. And Christmas at the Village is always delight with carolers, pretzels on toasting, and special holiday perfromances. These are just to name a few.

I am always enchanted by what each building has to offer. There is such a diverse collection of artifacts display dating from the mid 19th century to the early 20th century. And what is even more amazing, is the amount of artifacts that are not on display due to lack of space and proper conditions.

The professional staff and friendly volunteers are always bustling about with seamless effort making improvements and working as guardians of history.

This is a place that must be seen.

The Great!

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

In the less than one year I've been a volunteer, I've seen amazing accomplishments and changes for the better in both exhibits and programing and event selection.

Ways to make it better...

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

Give them the funds they need to make the structural improvements needed to house all their artifacts, as well as for the staffing needed to execute the endless possibilties when it comes to programing for children (and adults).

MY ROLE:
Board Member & I volunteer at special events, inventory, and help with fundraising campaigns.
