‘Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.’
April 6th-12th is National Volunteer Week and the perfect time to say how much we appreciate everything our dedicated team does to help us. Come to the Cannery and chances are good that you will encounter a volunteer – perhaps greeting you at a special event, organizing the gift shop, or imparting their considerable knowledge on tour. Equally important are the helping hands behind the scenes who are building our exhibits, mailing our newsletters, processing our memberships and making the big decisions on our board. They help us run this place on every level and we could not succeed without them. All together now…YOU’RE THE BEST!
