Assisting in the Cafe at the Antiques Show is fun!
Volunteers having a great time!

Each year, the Society relies on numerous volunteers to help with a variety of projects including: organizing the annual  house tour, becoming a museum educator for visiting schools and the general public, assisting with administrative duties (social media, website updating, etc.), and providing special event assistance for a total of about 5,000 hours.
