NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK ~ APRIL 23RD – 29TH

NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK ~ APRIL 23RD – 29TH

The coming week has been declared “National Volunteer Week” and it’s rather fitting that we honoured our Museum Volunteers at the recent Comox Valley Air Force Museum Association AGM on April 4th.  During the meeting, we celebrated the many contributions of our volunteers.  It might interest you to know that our volunteers do a number of things to maintain the high quality of our Museum:  The Collections Management Committee meets monthly to work with the many donations brought in.  Many volunteers work in the Gift Shop, welcoming visitors and helping them with their purchases.  We are involved in display construction and development.  We work in the Library and assist with research.  We work in the archives and process photographs.  We administer our website and contribute posts to the site.  We maintain our presence on Facebook.  We staff events such as the Cumberland Heritage Fair..  We work on the Heritage Maintenance Team, working on our heritage vehicles and aircraft.  We participate on the Comox Valley Air Force Museum Association Board. In the past year, we contributed well over 11,000 hours!  And we get so involved with what we’re doing we don’t always record our hours! In addition to celebrating the volunteers, this year, some of our members received special recognition along with our admiration and thanks.   Alex received his five year pin.  Alex gives of his time in the Gift Shop.                 Three people received their ten year pins:     Gary helps in the Gift Shop.                   Steve volunteers in the Gift Shop.          ...

SNOWBIRDS AND CF-18 DEMO TEAM AT OUR MUSEUM

On Easter Sunday, our volunteers were busy supporting the Snowbirds and CF-18 Demo Team Autograph Session.  They arrived early to prepare the Museum for the always popular event, they helped our special guests park, they set up the tables and chairs in the Library, they helped greet and guide the public through the lineup, they helped in the Gift Shop, and they cleaned up after the event.  Without the support of our volunteers, this event wouldn’t be what it is.  So first - a very special thank you to all of you! As always, you worked together to make it happen! We want to also thank the Snowbirds and Demo Team for their welcoming interaction with the public!  We love having you in the skies each spring! Here are some memories of the Autograph Session ~      ...
