The Railroad and Heritage Museum honored about 45 volunteers at its annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner Thursday, April 12th at the museum.
Museum Director Mary Irving said volunteers had given the museum 4,600 hours last year and those hours have helped the museum secure grants. “Volunteers are the heart and soul of the museum,” she said.
Four special awards were presented. Norman Resor was named Volunteer of the Year. The Curatorial Services Award was given to Richard Mann. Ben Jolson received the Archival Services Award and CentraMod members Noel Cowling, Ed Neill, Dan Ladd, and Bill Lancaster won the Education Award.
The entertainment was provided by Dr. Mike Middleton on his accordion.
