Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon

IMG_3077We celebrated a Volunteer Appreciation luncheon at the Museum of Appalachia on November 7th. About 35 volunteers, board members, and staff were present for the luncheon with a live bluegrass band. Afterwards, all were invited to view the extensive museum grounds to discover the deep history of the areas where we serve.
