Volunteer Appreciation 2014: An Electrifying Day!
On Friday, June 6 the Jewish Museum of Maryland celebrated our volunteers at our Annual Volunteer Appreciation event. The event was held at the National Electronics Museum in Linthicum. The venue was selected in honor of the upcoming collaboration with the National Electronics Museum during our summer exhibit The Electrified Pickle, which opens on Sunday, July 13.
A highlight of the afternoon was the tour led by Assistant Director, Alice Donahue. Following the tour, we enjoyed lunch together plus were offered an update by JMM staff. This year the JMM welcomed 13 new volunteers who are participating in a variety of positions. Attention was drawn to a few of the Archives and Collections volunteers who have scanned many 1000’s of photos, and digitized many hundreds of birth records! In the front of the museum, the front desk receptionists, museum shop attendants, and docents continue to be the face of the Museum to our continually increasing numbers of visitors. The JMM is indebted to our volunteers and looks forward to many more years of working together.
