Volunteer Staff

Our Volunteers are Awesome!

We could not do it without them! Our volunteers are what keep things moving forward at the Reno County Museum! They volunteer their time to assist with cataloging artifacts, placing things in storage, operating our front desk, and being a part of museum events. They each bring something unique and wonderful to the Reno County Museum and are always a joy to work with!

Joanne Wiegert

Joanne likes reading, art, gardening and doing creative projects. She volunteers her time to catalog artifacts, build exhibits, and even to repair some of the well-loved toys in the Oodleplex from time to time. Joanne also regularly volunteers to help at museum events. She has also done a lot of work to help us plan and put together our Hello Dolly! program.
