April is National Volunteer Month and at PGM we love taking this time to thank all of our wonderful volunteers! Each April we host a Volunteer Recognition Dinner to say a special thank you to our top volunteers who donate 40 hours or more of their time to the Museum over the last year. This past year we had over 5000 hours recorded at the Museum from volunteers in our Museum Store, Collections, Archaeology, Education, Mudslingers, and more! A Volunteer Recognition Dinner tradition at PGM, each year Collections Assistant Laura Andrew tries to sum up all that our volunteers do for us at PGM and how much we appreciate them with a poem, dedicated to the best volunteers anyone could ask for!
They walk and talk and educate
They make our guests experience really great!
I’m glad the person giving the school tour isn’t me!
They guide our guests great and small
Delivering exceptional customer service to all.
They do the job whatever we ask
They take pictures and inventory artifacts
Their humor and sense of fun never lacks.
Thanks to them we’re not in this alone!
They are there when we need them for every request
We are lucky to have the very best!
