would the Sooke Region Museum be able to accomplish so much
without the hundreds of volunteers who continue to lend
a hand in such a variety of ways.
it's helping to staff the museum's Gift Shop, the school
program, helping organize special events, Open House, Snowman
Building contests, serving at salmon barbecues, contributing
musical performances, building exhibits, working at special
fund-raising events, research projects, weeding the gardens,
selling raffle tickets, cleaning the lens, proofreading,
stuffing envelopes, and much more, volunteers have a great
time working together. Typically, Volunteers, Staff and
Board members all get together to celebrate a sense of accomplishment
and camaraderie with a potluck party in late August.
volunteer work of today follows on the heels of the incredible
dedication of the Sooke Lions Club and the Sooke Community
Association in getting the museum established in the first
place. Back in the mid-1970s it was the wonderful spirit
and hard work of the Sooke Lions that initated the project,
and it was the generosity and community spirit of the volunteers
of Sooke Community Association that provided the property
where it could be built. It is because of these groups and
many others that have joined in to support the Sooke Region
Historical Society, that the museum has become a cornerstone
of community life.
