Thank You Volunteers!

As we enter this next season of thankfulness, we at the Plainsman Museum would like to take the time to give thanks for our many volunteers who help make our mission possible! Since the Plainsman Museum's beginning in 1976, volunteers have been essential in carrying out the day-to-day functions of the museum, as well as helping to preserve the history we have been entrusted with by the local community.


Thank you all!


To help give a further glimpse into the work of our volunteers, we have asked several of our regular volunteers to answer some interview questions about what they do here at the museum, and we will be featuring them in a series of blog posts for the next few weeks. Click the button below to begin reading this series of posts, and help us thank our volunteers for all they do!

Thank you!
