Last night we held our annual Volunteer Recognition dinner, organized by Volunteer Coordinator Stephanie Span.

It was a success once again!

Stephanie Span's speech, "Thank You Volunteers."

Volunteers were honored for 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 years of service. We also gave out our special awards to:
  • Judy Pocock, Curator's Award
  • Mary Woods, Volunteer of the Year
  • Robert Belden, McKinley Award
Here are some photos of the award recipients:

Overall shot of the auditorium "all dressed up"!!

The theme of the evening was the Roaring Twenties, since we've had so much fun with it for the past few months! The decorations were purple flowers and favors were chocolate instruments. The auditorium really can be dressed up! (we usually see it as a lunchroom for kids on field trips!)

After a wonderful dinner, Chris entertained everyone with his "Music of the 1920s" program. My camera battery died a few seconds into his second song, so I was only able to capture the first one on video. Here's one picture of him, followed by a video of him playing "The Charleston."

THANK YOU to all of our volunteers. We truly couldn't open the doors without you!
