Do you know how to swing a hammer?  Are you part of a group that donates their time?  Do you or someone you know need service hours? If so, please contact Heidi Alexander!

We are also seeking a wide variety of materials, for both construction and exhibits, to help bring our museum to life. If you can donate something, it would be greatly appreciated. We are very good at Reusing and Recycling! For construction materials contact Heidi Alexander, if you have materials for programs or exhibits contact  Kathy Goers.
