Historical Museum to Host Volunteer Appreciation Event | Columns

It is an understatement to say that the past few years have been difficult and difficult to predict. Between the constant shifts from in-person to virtual events, the wearing of masks, health issues and social distancing, the past few years have not been easy – especially for museum volunteers.

Fortunately, the COVID-19 numbers in Ottawa County have improved enough that we are comfortable hosting an in-house museum celebration. First on the register for 2022 is Volunteer Appreciation and Open House.
