Volunteers Extraordinaire

September 20, 2015

How many ways can we say THANK YOU!

The Ohio Genealogical Society owes its success to volunteers. Volunteers are the backbone of our structure.  We have a vast network of volunteers who help patrons find their ancestral roots as well as working on numerous projects. All officers and trustees are volunteers. Once a year, the Society honors and recognizes all volunteers with a catered luncheon. Today was the day. A delicious meal was served by V & M Restaurant from Bellville, Ohio. Lovely purple and yellow mums decorated the tables and served as doorprizes. Keith Metcalf entertained with guitar music in the style of Chet Atkins. His easy-listening style is always a big hit. Two of our library volunteers won tickets to next week’s Fall Seminar with Thomas MacEntee.

Of course, we can always use more volunteers. If you are willing to spend 4-5 hours a week helping others in their genealogical pursuits, we’d love to have you be a part of our organization. Do you have a talent for digitizing records? Do you like to file things? Do you like taking inventory? We can find plenty for you to do. Come on over and check us out!
