CWS Volunteers

The Center's volunteer program began in 2002. Today, a loyal group of community members share their time and talent with the Center allowing us to be open Saturdays from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. Volunteers welcome visitors, answer questions, give tours of the exhibits, answer phones, and sell books and gift shop items. We have also expanded to include volunteers who work at the Center during the week. Our volunteers are wonderful ambassadors and we appreciate all they that do!

We are always looking for more volunteers. If you are interested, please contact Kristi Thomas, Education Assistant, at (605) 274-4005 or e-mail
