Volunteers Receive Proclamation

At its March 19th meeting, the Florence City Council presented a proclamation recognizing the Volunteers of the Oregon Coast Military Museum. The proclamation, presented by Mayor Joe Henry who also sits on the Museum Board, designated March 18 thru 24, 2018 as “Oregon Coast Military Museum Volunteer Appreciation Week”. The proclamation was accepted by Museum Chief of Staff Geoff Cannon, and Volunteer David Burkett, who is also an ex-officio board member representing the Museum Volunteers.

On Sunday March 18th, the Museum’s Board of Directors held a BBQ for the Volunteers at the Museum, to thank them for their service. In his remarks to the Volunteers, President Gene Wobbe stated “while the Board and Executive Director work behind the scenes, you along with Geoff are the face of our Museum to the community. We couldn’t accomplish our mission without you volunteering your time and talents, and we do appreciate that.”

The Museum is located at 2145 Kingwood Street in Florence, and open to the public Thursday through Saturday, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and is always seeking more Volunteers to work in the displays as a docent, or gift shop.
