An exhibit opened Feb. 9 to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the St. Charles Historic Society and the 90th anniversary of the St. Charles History Museum building.
Deering said museum staff haven’t been working on the maintenance alone, but they appreciate any help.
“[Volunteer turnout] has been really great on the weekends, but we [needed] people on weekdays from Tuesday to Saturday,” Deering said.
Two volunteers that came in on Jan. 20 were Sharon and Mikell Darling of St. Charles who haven’t volunteered with St. Charles History Museum before, but have experience with cataloging museum items.
