Volunteers are the heart of any organization. At the Beatty Museum they are also the life blood of the Historical Society. With only two paid employees we depend on our volunteers to help keep the Beatty Museum open and running efficiently. Volunteers represent a vast array of ages, interests and backgrounds. They bring with them diverse expertise, interests, resources and enthusiasm. Without them the Beatty Museum and Historical Society could not advance it's missions and projects.
