• 4-H Volunteers Helping Local Museum!

    When I received the call from Laurie Jones that offered help to the Comanche County, Texas Historical Musuem from some of the Newburg 4-H members, I wanted to stand and cheer! If you’ve never done it, you just can’t imagine the amount of work that goes into keeping a museum in working order, and those young minds and bodies were certainly welcome and very needed.

    Student volunteers were Masyn Donough, Jacob Berry, John Moerman, Frank Moerman, Michael Ferris-Donough, Marki Jones, Jolee Jones, Makayla Donough, Mary Moerman, and Maggie Moerman.

    As you can see, much was just plain old hard work, and every single ounce of it so appreciated!

    One Response to 4-H Volunteers Helping Local Museum!

    1. Missy Jones says:

      I am so proud of all of these Newburg 4-H members who are volunteering at different places. We love having them at the Museum, and they have accomplished so much. They are learning one of the cardinal rules of growing up, that “everyone can help out and volunteer”. As I tell some school students, you can spend your time playing with a little game, goint “doodley, doodley, doodley”, or you can help other people, and spend time searching out interesting bits of information. With the internet, if you want to know more about “Comanche Indians”, Quanah Parker”, “the Alamo”, or anything else, do a search on the internet and I guarantee you there will be 10,000 places for you to go to for information. You just might find something that will interest you for the rest of your life, as well as learning how satisfying it is to do something for other people. Remember, Volunteering is doing something to help other people, and you don’t get paid for it. Missy Jones
