To The Volunteers: Thanks Guys!

Earlier this week the Sherburne History Center honored and celebrated the many volunteers that make this fine institution work.  As a way to say thank you, the Board of Directors sponsored Mexican theme dinner to host the volunteers that have given more than 2700 hours of their time to SHC in the past year.

The many volunteers at SHC have done everything from processing collections in the Archives and the museum; to organizing and staging programs and special events.  Their work is valued at over $29,000 in labor for the past twelve months.

After the dinner, and a brief annual meeting, Mike Roberts spoke to the audience.  Roberts is the author of the book The Last Keeper at Split Rock, an interesting memoir of his years of service in the Coast Guard.  During his service, Roberts spent 27 months as the last light keeper at the Split Rock lighthouse on the Great Lakes.

Although we can’t say it enough, we will try to continue to say thank you to everyone that works so hard for the benefit of the Sherburne History Center.
