Celebrating Our Volunteers!

Pueblo Grande Museum
Volunteer Recognition Event 2012
Celebrating Arizona 1912-2012
We got a jump start on National Volunteer Week last Friday with our annual Volunteer Recognition Dinner, celebrating our most dedicated and hard working volunteers. Each year we pick a theme to help set the mood and add to the fun. This year we just had to have a Centennial theme so we could celebrate both our volunteers and Arizona at the same time. Volunteers and staff were encouraged to come dressed as their favorite Arizona personality. No appearances from Winnie Ruth Judd or Alice Cooper, but here are a few pictures from the dinner, and remember if you want to be invited to our next event, BECOME A VOLUNTEER! We'd love to have you.

Each year, collections assistant Laura A, writes a little poem dedicated to our volunteers, which she recites at the event. Here was this years little ditty:

Volunteers, Volunteers at PGM

Oh, give me a museum where knowledge is free
Where schools groups spend the day
Where often is heard an encouraging word
And the volunteers lead tours for no-pay

Our volunteers teach and often inspire
As they guide groups along the trail
Their dedication is greatly admired!
We depend on them without fail

Oh, give me a museum where all have fun
Where questions and answers do flow
Where often is heard an encouraging word
And our minds are allowed to grow

Our volunteers help out in so many ways
In exhibits, collections and the store
We are thankful for them everyday
They continue to give more and more

Oh, give me a museum where memories are built
Where volunteers are recognized
Where often is heard an encouraging word
And volunteers can change lives.

Volunteers, Volunteers at PGM
We couldn’t do it with out THEM!
