8-14 May 2017 is National Volunteer Week!

Volunteer Week is an annual celebration to acknowledge the generous contributions of our Nation’s Volunteers…

Did you know SAAM has NO paid staff? We are entirely dependent on the hard work, commitment and enthusiasm of our volunteers, and we are very proud of them.

Here’s a good example – a hard-working group in our library, busy on a major re-organisation of the collection that’s underway. Ian Jones is on the left, who is a photographer and works on the video section; then Rod Kopp, who has the thankless job of Membership Officer on the Committee; Jean Kopp, who as well as library work and countless chores around the museum also produces the newsletter; Nigel Daw, our Librarian who leads the library staff; and Vern Kendall, who can be found every week helping in the library. There are many others who help out too.

There are many, many more volunteers busy on a huge range of activities that make SAAM such a good place to visit – some of whom we will be featuring and thanking on our Facebook page this week.
