On February 13th, we held an appreciation dinner for our volunteers. Volunteers are the heartbeat of what we do here; without them, we could not exist. We thought it would be fun to have a taco bar and honor their service to The Hegeler Carus Foundation. Everyone enjoyed themselves and loved the tacos!
Our volunteers do much more than give great guided tours of the Mansion. They also do research, archive, promote the Mansion via social media and presentations, help out at our special events like our summer concerts, and participate in our theatrical-type productions such as our murder mysteries and Christmas shows.
We calculated the hours donated by these volunteers for the year 2019. It came to an astounding 1,785 hours, a value of $32,130 that was applied to the bottom line of the Foundation.
Thank you again volunteers, for your time allows us to continue enhancing the Mansion and the grounds.
