Exhibits, programs, and activities that educate the museums' patrons are offered. Selected for preservation are structures, objects, documents, photographs, oral and visual histories, and all artifacts that add to the telling of Alvin's story."

Record Volunteer Hours

Don't forget to keep track of your volunteer hours in support of the Alvin Museum Society's programs. Report your hours on a calendar year basis to Fran VanWinkle. It is important that all hours are reported because volunteer efforts are pertinent when applying for grants. So, if you haven't been recording your volunteer hours, take a few minutes now to review your participation and report to Fran by the end of the year. Many thanks for your cooperation in this task.
