Having really enjoyed my time at the Monroe County History Center, I decided to volunteer to help at their annual garage sale fundraiser this past weekend. The Center is dependent on volunteer staff, many of which are senior citizens. I enjoyed meeting some of the other volunteers and being able to help support MCHC. I am aware of the importance of fundraising and community involvement in private memory institutions like the History Center, and supporting such events is critical to the daily operations of these places. Overall I think interacting with my internship in this way was a great addition to my opportunity.
