My volunteer Sally
Yesterday my volunteer Sally Winkelman received her 20 year pin!
Before I came in 2001, Sally did a variety of volunteer work at the Museum, including making padded hangers for the hanging textile collection. Shortly after I arrived, we launched a project to document the artifact collection for the new database, because we could now attach pictures to each record.
Sally has been photographing artifacts ever since!
A few years ago I gave her the Curator's Award for her dedication to this project. It is ongoing, because we have thousands and thousands of artifacts, plus new ones coming in all the time.
Sally is a treasure in my department!
