Honoring PHMC's Volunteers of the Year

Please see the April program page for events coming up this weekend and Monday. The May program listing is also available now as well.

Tomorrow, April 28, we will gather to honor volunteers for their service in 2017. The Volunteer of the Year Awards is a wonderful occasion to bring people together from all over the Pennsylvania Trails of History. We get to thank people in person (except for the few not able to join us for the day) for their efforts in support of our sites and museums. And we get to hear about the many skills and talents our volunteers share with the public, whether they work on the front lines or behind the scenes. It's a great way to wrap up National Volunteer Week and National Volunteer Month.

The honorees are pictured below, and there is a link for each so that you can read more about their volunteer activities. Please join me in congratulating them and thanking them for their support of PHMC's historic sites and museums.
