Another Letter: Volunteer praised



Editor: All organizations rely on volunteers at one time or another. Sometimes the results are good and sometimes they are average at best. The Greater Buckeye Lake Historical Society had a very unusual experience this summer. We had a volunteer who exceeded expectations in every task given to her. She was always cheerful, always willing and always got the job […]
