The constant and enthusiastic support of volunteers is the reason for the Wende Museum’s success. Many of the volunteers have been involved with the Museum from its inception. As the Museum continues to grow and attract new supporters, we will always be grateful to those who gave generously of their time and money to ensure that this project thrives.
