On 19 August 2006, under a clear blue sky, the annual picnic honoring the Museum volunteers took place. With the temperature around 80 degrees, a better day couldn't have been asked for. The food was plentiful and varied enough to suit everyone's desires. Former Museum Administrator Shon Zwada did a superb job at the grill, providing a ample supply of hot dogs and hamburgers. 

Thanks Shon, thanks also to Chuck Bowen, Tom Caparrella, and Mike Forhan for transporting and setting and setting up the tables. 

It's always special to be able to recognize the longevity of service to the Museum in a variety of areas. This year the twenty year plaque was presented to the following volunteers:

Al Berchman, Chuck Bowen Herb Mellor, Glenn Morgan, Herb Tollefson

Unable to attend the picnic the following volunteers received their plaques subsequent to the picnic.

Willie Bledsoe, Cliff Bouchee, Gordon Smith, Don Tracy
